Bessborough Centre improving services for residents

Westminster City Council is continuing to improve the quality of its services for families. As part of this, the Children’s Centre will be moving from Churchill Gardens to the Bessborough Centre in order to provide a better space and facility for families and young people to use. Works are due to finish on the Bessborough Centre in June 2018.

The centre will not be closing, and vital services will still be delivered at the Bessborough Centre, however there might be some minor disruption while works take place on each floor.

Once works are completed, a wider range of support will be available for not only families with young children, but for families with children aged 0 to 19.
