New arrangements for Southwark Park Road Day Centre

Closed 25 Apr 2016

Opened 29 Feb 2016

Feedback expected 30 Jun 2016


We are planning to merge your day centre with Fred Francis and want to know what you think.

In 2013, we decided to build a new day centre at Cator Street. It was agreed that service users of Fred Francis and Southwark Park Road would move to the new centre when it opened. Both day centres would then close.

Unfortunately, there have been unforseen delays with completing the new centre, which we'd hoped would be ready this year but now won't open until 2018.

We are proposing to merge Southwark Park Road with Fred Francis until the new centre is ready. Southwark Park Road will close and service users will access services from Fred Francis.

Having everyone at one centre will give us a chance to try out some of our ideas for the new centre before it opens.

We want to know what you think about this proposal. If you want more information on this change, please read the factsheet below.
