Help us Save our Children's Centres - Our Voice Matters
We the undersigned, do not support the councils current plans for Newham Children's Centre's, including the discontinuation of services at Abbey Lane Children's Centre.
Our borough is already disadvantaged & the changes proposed will put us at an even greater disadvantage. Parents with younger children & siblings will lose out!
Furthermore, children's centre's are already over crowded & the changes mean that some children will be denied access to important services that allow them to develop & be ready for school.
The proposals mean less staff & resources for children & parents.
Children centres are great places for parents to get advice, share common knowledge, for children to develop communication skills & learn how to interact with other children.
Our children are the future of this community, city & this country.
Cutting budgets from local services that they access will hurt our community. If anything, the council should be increasing funding to children's centres to continue to improve outcomes for children, not reduce funding.
