Update - March 2020

A decision has been taken to continue to deliver the day service but deliver it in another suitable building (Westbrook House, near Margate). Service users will be able to transfer as a group with the staff they are familiar with and within three miles of Minnis Community Hub.



Update - January 2020

Thank you to everyone that took part in the consultation. The reports and updated Equality Impact Assessment are now available in the Summary of Results section below. The outcome of the consultation will be discussed at Cabinet Committee on 16 January and this page will be updated once a decision has been taken.



Original Text

Minnis Community Hub is a centre in Birchington, Thanet, that provides services for Older People and Adults with a Learning Disability.

We have been exploring the way forward for Older People’s Day Services delivered from Minnis Community Hub and now seek views on the future of the service and the proposal to move it to Westbrook House in Margate.

KCC’s Adult Learning Disability Service is not part of this consultation and it is planned that it will remain at the Hub.

We would like to hear your views about the proposal.

We recommend you read the consultation document which can be found in the Documents section below.
