Family Centres shake-up fears

THE future of two children’s centres is in doubt again only a year after a national charity took over responsibility for them.

Action for Children is reviewing how the Rainbow centres in Henley and Sonning Common are run.

Staff are being formally consulted but the Henley Standard understands that they are being asked to re-apply for their jobs and that the administrator at the Henley centre has already left.

The move comes less than four months after parents won a campaign to stop the centres being closed as part of cuts by Oxfordshire County Council.

The centres — at the d:two centre in Market Place, Henley, and Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common — help needy families with children from birth to age five.
