Bexley Cabinet Members took a decision to introduce a new model for Bexley's Children's Centres at their meeting earlier this week (Wednesday 1 September). 

The new model will see a dedicated in-house Children's Centre team who will provide targeted support to children and their families, running sessions in the Children Centres and other venues across the Borough.

This team would be in addition to the existing services already provided by Health Visitors and Midwives.

The changes will see more services run from Children's Centre buildings as well as from venues across the Borough, including, libraries, leisure centres and community buildings.  This will give families more choice and allow them to be able to access services nearer to their homes. 

The changes will be implemented from 1 November.
