Further to minute 474 (23/4/09) the Director of Children’s Services submitted a report setting out the process that was followed to commission four Super Youth Clubs, one in each of the four districts of Wirral. The ‘My Place’ report to Cabinet on 25 September, 2008 had already identified Shaftesbury as the Birkenhead Super Youth Centre Hub. In line with the Cabinet decision at its meeting on 23 April (Cabinet report, Commissioning Criteria for universal, open access youth support services), a second round of commissioning during May – July 2009 had identified a further three providers, namely,  Eastham Youth Club as the Centre for South Wirral, Wallasey Fire Station for Wallasey and West Kirby Youth Centre for West Wirral.

West Wirral  - West Kirby Youth Club
