Save Our Children's Centre!!

"We the undersigned call upon the Council to scrap plans to close Leicestershire's
Sure Start Children's Centres. These provide a vital service for many local families."

The Tory-run County Council plans to close Barwell Children's Centre

Conservative Councillors on Leicestershire County Council are proposing to close 24 Children's Centres across the County.
This petition calls on them to change their minds and keep the Centres open.

Sure Start Centres are places where families with children 0-5 years old can access information, support and services. Activities include Baby Clinics, Stay and Play, Childminder Groups, Parenting Skills, and many more.

Providing support to families at this early stage provides huge benefits to the child that stay with them throughout their life. Councils that neglect this duty find themselves having to provide more expensive social care services later on. Whether we're looking at the financial cost, or the human cost, closing these Centres is something we can't afford to do!

Please sign the petition to show support for your local centre.

You can find out what is planned for your local centre here.
