Both our Children's Centres have an advisory board whose job is to work with the centre manager and the council to ensure that children and families receive the best possible support, care and education. The advisory board ensures services meet local needs and contribute to improving children's outcomes. It provides support and challenge to the children's centre and makes sure that development plans and objectives enable all children to make the best possible progress and meet local needs as well as national targets.
