Changes to children’s centres

Our new family and wellbeing service will launch in April.

The new 0-19 service will focus on supporting the most vulnerable families in Leicestershire and will bring together four existing services into one.

The new integrated service will be delivered from 21 Family Wellbeing Centres.

The location of these buildings is based on a number of criteria including their location, accessibility suitability for future use, current use and geographical distribution across the county.

What’s happening to my local children’s centre?

Although some children’s centres will be closing by 31 March, we are busy working with partners and organisations in your local area to ensure we are still delivering services in your community.

Where we can, we will make sure that whatever the centres become they will continue to support local children in some way.

We will continue to offer a wide range of support and services in the centres that will remain open.
