Kent County Council (KCC) has launched an eight–week consultation about the future of services for older people at Minnis Community Hub.
KCC has been exploring the way forward for the day service at Minnis Community Hub and now seeks the views of service users on the future of services that are delivered at the centre.
The council is proposing to move the day service from the hub to Westbrook House Integrated Care Centre, which provides care for frail older adults and older adults living with dementia. It is located in Canterbury Road, Margate.
Learning Disability services will continue to use Minnis Community Hub.
Clair Bell, Cabinet Member for the Adult Social Care and Public Health, said: “Kent County Council is committed to finding a way forward for services at Minnis Community Hub that ensure we are providing the best possible care for people while making the best use of the centre as a valued community asset.
“We are keen to hear the views of people using the service, their families, staff and the wider community and I urge them all to take part in this consultation.”
During the consultation, KCC will be meeting with people who use the service, their families and staff to gather their views and answer any questions.
The consultation information and an online questionnaire will be available at kent.gov.uk/minnisconsultation
