Last chance to have your say on the proposed changes to Bolton Start Well Centres.
The Bolton Council consultation on the proposed changes to Bolton Start Well Centres will close next Tuesday 19th October 2021 at 5:00pm. If you'd like to have your say - access the consultation survey here.
Currently there are three main Start Well Centres supporting families and children aged 0 - 5 years. Each of the three centres has their own governance board that supports the 14 further link Start Well Centres across the borough. Bolton Council are proposing to:
- Rename the Start Well Centres, calling them Start Well Family Hubs: The hubs will then support families from pregnancy onwards until their children are 19 years old, or older for those with special needs.
- Change the way the governance boards work, by having a Start Well Family Hub in each neighbourhood, reporting to one boroughwide board, instead of three.
- Include the Bright Meadows Centre in Breightmet as a Start Well Family Hub, alongside the other 17 centres.
