Save Calderdale Sure Start Centres

148 Signatures Goal: 0

Sure Start is the government's programme to support children and families by delivering the best start in life for every child and to help parents balance their work and family commitments.  Calderdale's Sure Start centres offer childcare, family support and a range of health, training and employment services depending on local needs. 

 

The council want to remove the funding for the nurseries at Sowerby Bridge (New Rd), Wellholme Park, Siddal, Field Lane, Elland and Todmorden, effectively closing them. 

 

We demand that Calderdale Council urgently re-think the proposal to stop funding Sure Start nurseries.  The services offered by Sure Start are a vital part of our society and are there to support all children and parents.  Sure Start is more than a building, it is about learning new skills, support with employment and training, support with parenting and being equipped to take on the challenges that being a parent brings.
