As many of you will have seen or heard the future of Norfolk Children's Centres is now under consultation with a proposal to offer services of 7 Early Childhood and Family Service district hubs across Norfolk from October 2019. We are aware that the changes proposed will feel unsettling and may look very different. The Children's Centre Team will endeavor to answer your questions as best as they can.
Norfolk County Council want the proposed Early Childhood and Family Service to continue to make significant different to the lives of young children and their families.
We would encourage you to have your say and have your voice heard on the proposed changes by clicking on the following link -
Consultation ends on the 12th November.
Please share and encourage your friends and family to have your say too.
