Children's Centres Consultation

Page 1 of 8

Closes 6 Mar 2019

Designation and number of centres

Redbridge children’s centres comprise eight “hub” centres plus thirteen “spoke” centres. Hub centres are open to the public from 8:30am to 4:30pm. Spoke centres are open to the public as and when a session is being run by the Children’s Centre staff or by a partner agency.

  • Option 1 - Convert Aldersbrook from a hub to a spoke
  • Option 2 - Close under-used spoke centres (Chadwell, Forest, Oakdale and Winston Way)
  • Option 3 - Convert Aldersbrook from a hub to a spoke AND close under-used spoke centres (Chadwell, Forest, Oakdale and Winston Way)
  • Option 4 - No change
