Update regarding Children's Centre closures

As preparations are made for the new Family Centre model, we are now in a position to let you know that our Fun in the Sun summer event on 25th July 2019 was our last universal offer.  Therefore there will be no sessions from now on. 
Staff will be in the centre until 1st October 2019, except for a break on the 19th August until 2nd September.

Our outreach work will continue during this transitional period.

As a team we have loved being a part of the community and would really like to take this opportunity to say how much we have enjoyed being a small part of all your children's lives.  The Poplars has been a place for families to meet other families for over 9 years and we really hope that you will continue your friendships for many years to come.  Our Summer Event this year was a celebration of our success and our final goodbye.




As you may know there will be changes this year to Children's centres and how Surrey County Council supports families

The new approach will involve Surrey County Council focusing its resources on helping the families most in need of support, which means some of the existing Children's centres will close and others will become Family centres. Surrey County Council will no longer provide universal services for all families at Family Centres but other organisations, such as Health visitors, may offer these at the centres and at other community venues.

You can use the Family Information Directory to find universal and other services, support groups, activities, events and more.

·      The changes will take place at different times accross Surrey's 11 districts and boroughs, so to make sure families can find out what is happening in their area the district and borough pages on the Family Information Service website will be regularly updated from April 2019. They will provide information about when current activities offered at children's centres will close and where Family centres will open.
