SPA Extended Hours (Message from Clive Seall - Interim Strategic Head of FSS, AfC)

Following engagement with our partners and service users, I am pleased to announce that both SPAs will be opening on a permanent basis between the hours of 8am and 6pm from the 1st July 2016. The SPA extended hours pilot in Richmond at the beginning of the year showed that there was a tremendous appetite for the service, particularly from schools, health and working parents. The roll out of this becoming core SPA practice is very much based on reaching out to a wider audience across AfC.
