Children's Centre Consultation 

Blackpool Children’s Centre services are a pivotal part of Blackpool Councils early help offer, with over 4,700 children under 5 years old accessing the offer last year.  Due to a funding withdrawal of £1m per year from the Department for Education, a consultation is underway across Blackpool’s children’s centres. Services for children and families are not reducing however will be delivered differently. 
It is proposed that a number of ‘Hubs’ will be developed across the town which will link to a network of neighbourhood centres and community venues. Each will have extended opening hours and a wider offer of services and programmes to residents of all ages.
