Silsden SureStart centre could be downgraded
9:00am Sunday 22nd December 2013 in News
Silsden’s SureStart centre could be downgraded in a shake-up of children’s centres across the district.
Labour-run Bradford Council has come up with a consultation document which suggests a total overhaul of the way all centres are run and funded.
The Children’s Centre Delivery Proposal suggests turning Silsden’s Daisy Chain centre into an outreach base, with no paid staff and only open when booked and run by volunteers.
The changes are part of measures to save the authority £2.4 million and form part of a plan to save £3 million from youth services over two years.
