On my return from Fenland I attended an event hosted by the Colleges children centre off Campkin Road, Cambridge. This was attended by city councillors, county councillors and officers.
This children’s centre is yet another great example of providing a service to families. I have a particular interest in this area of Cambridge building on my visit to The Manor School ( see previous posts). I was able to offer my support to sharing buildings and services for the benefit of the community.
I have an ambition to ensure all our services are judged from the customers perspective. From my uninformed position I do not understand the artificial separation of services between adult social care, learning and children and young people. They all represent parts of our communities and the technical separation of services should be sorted out by the council, behind the scenes. I will continue to raise my understanding in these areas.
