Early Years Health and Wellbeing Services Follow on Consultation

Closed 14 Jan 2018

Opened 4 Dec 2017


The way that we deliver children’s centres, health visiting services and parenting support services in Birmingham is changing. Have your say on our updated proposals for Erdington, Perry Barr and Sutton Coldfield.
Every parent wants the best for their children and Birmingham City Council supports parents and families by offering every child, living in Birmingham, an equal chance to have a really good start in life.
We feel that, one way that this can be achieved is if every child has reached a good level of development by the time they start school.
Early years services offer support to families from the point that a child is conceived up until they start school. These services are available to everyone and are a key component in building healthy and happy families.
The proposal within this consultation will not effect early education provision to include those provided within nursery schools: these will continue to be available.
Please refer to the consultation booklet, at the bottom of this page under events, to answer the following questionnaire.
Please note, you don't have to be a parent to take part in this consultation. 

Why We Are Consulting

The proposals we are now consulting you on are in line with the service delivery model we recommended to Cabinet on the 24 October 2017.

We have used what you told us during the last consultation to make changes to our proposals.  We now need to get your views on our updated proposals to make sure the services will continue to meet your needs.

There are three (3) children’s centres that require follow-on consultation as our proposals have changed:

  • Erdington – Story Wood Children’s Centre
  • Perry Barr – Cherry Tree Children’s Centre
  • Sutton Coldfield – New Hall Children’s Centre

What Happens Next

When this consultation ends on the 14 January 2018 we will consider what you have told us.  We will listen to the comments you have made and we will take these into account.  Using your views we will make a recommendation on how services will be delivered for these districts.  Once the decision has been made the outcome will be shared with you and we will tell you more about how and when services will change.  Until this point you can continue to access services as usual.
