Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre Update May 2019
At the beginning of this year it was confirmed that Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre would close following a consultation on Family Resilience and Children’s Centres across Surrey. This consultation outlined the proposal to remodel Children’s Centres to Family Centres and as part of this remodelling, reduce Surrey’s 58 Children’s Centres to 21 Family Centres and satellite sites.
Following the closure of Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre, the lead Family Centre for the Mole Valley area will be Dorking Children’s Centre, Goodwyns Road. Family Centres will support families to access other universal services through sign posting. This means that services such as health, midwifery, citizen's advice and support with housing and employment, will continue to provide universal services from a range of community buildings and Family Centres.
To prepare for the closure of Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre, it has been confirmed this week that the Universal Service at Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre will be suspended after Friday 7th June. All services for the w/c 3rd June will run as normal. This includes:
Play & Learn
Little Treasures Ashtead & Leatherhead
Treasure Play Ashtead
Soft Play and Tots Soft Play
Post-natal support group
Our other services will continue to run up until the end of June, after which it is expected that Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre will close. Those services that will run up to the end of June are:
Rhyme & Sign
Introducing Family Foods
It is anticipated that Tuesday Self weigh clinics and Wednesday 27 month checks will continue to be facilitated by CFHS 0-19 team until the end of August.
For those families who have an attached Outreach Worker, the Outreach provision will continue past the closure of the Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre.
Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre has been incredibly proud to serve the families of Leatherhead and the surrounding areas since 2006. Whilst it is sad to see the Children’s Centre close, we would like to host a family picnic with staff, families and the local community to celebrate all the valuable work that has been carried out at the Centre since its opening and all the successful partnerships it has enjoyed with the local community.
Please come and join us for our family picnic on 11.30am – 2.00pm Thursday 13th June 2019 being held at Leatherhead Trinity Children’s Centre. This is a free event and there will be farm animals, some fun activities, picnic lunch and ice creams provided.
Thank you to all those who have supported the Children’s Centre here in Leatherhead over the past 12 years and please do continue to use our services whilst they are here. If you are unsure of when different services will be coming to an end or have any questions with regards to the Centre closure, please contact us on 01372 812754 or at firstname.lastname@example.org .
