Children’s Centre Consultation

The County Council is consulting on plans to restructure its network of children’s centres which deliver a range of children’s service. There are 40 such centres today including the one run at the Early Year’s Centre in Histon.

Under the plans the Histon centre will be ‘redesignated’. The Council says that it ‘would no longer run full Children’s Centre services from Histon Early Years Centre’ although it is likely to remain as an outreach delivery location.

Note that the Early Year’s Centre itself is not under threat. It is understood that some Children’s Centre Services will remain, some will be relocated south of the A14 and some may re-emerge in other facilities in the community.

It is important that as many people as possible respond to the consultation at:
