Advisory Board

Our Children's Centre Advisory Board plays a vital role in shaping our Children's Centre services.


The board is a group of multi-agency stakeholders, including parents/carers who meet regularly to ensure plans are in place to meet the needs of the local community. The role of the Advisory Board is to provide advice, assistance and challenge for Children's Centres; to work with centre leaders to identify priorities through effective consultation and engagement; agree objectives and development plans; monitor progress through performance outcomes; drive improvement in the children's centre's performance; ensure the services on offer meet local needs and to facilitate two way communication between the community and the children's centres.
