Family Wellbeing Centre Engagement Sessions

Local families can meet Sefton Council face-to-face to have their say on a consultation currently underway.

Families can directly discuss the proposal to have three integrated family and children centre bases called Family Wellbeing Centres for children and young people aged 0 to 19 and their families.

The consultation runs until November 17 and the proposed change does not include the closure of any of the centres.

The change is part of a move to make sure that children and young people aged 0-19 years can find the right support, for the right issue at the right time. 

There will be a number of consultation engagement sessions taking place across the borough, with some attended by Dwayne Johnson, Director of Social Care and Health at Sefton Council.

  • Netherton Children’s Centre and Family Centre is hosting briefings every Wednesday from 9.30am-11.30am and every Thursday from 12.45pm-2.45pm. Dwayne Johnson will be present on Friday, 20 October, from 10.15am-11.15am
  • Dwayne will also be attending Litherland Children’s Centre on 18 October, from 11am-12noon and Linaker Children’s Centre in Southport on 6 November, from 9am-10.30am
  • He will be at Seaforth Children’s Centre from 9am-10am on 20 October, Waterloo Children’s Centre from 10.30am-11.30am on 27 October, Freshfield Children’s Centre from noon-1pm on 1 November, Springwell Park Children’s Centre on Friday 3 November at 2.30pm and Cambridge Children’s Centre from 1pm-2pm on 7 November.                       

Anyone interested in the future of Family Wellbeing Centres across the borough is asked to attend the informal briefings and get involved in the consultation.

To take part in the consultation, please visit the sefton council website or go directly to a Children’s and Family Centre, a Sefton library or leisure centre where paper copies can be filled in and shared with us. 

Feedback from this consultation will be considered by Cabinet in December 2017.
