Parents Support - St Piers Sure Start Centre, Lingfield.
I am a parent, professional, volunteer or member of the local community who believes that St Piers Sure Start Children's Centre plays an important part in supporting children under five and their parents in my area. I want to register my strong opinion that this Centre should be allowed to continue its work and should not be forced to cut services or staff. This Centre is a much needed community resource for all parents but is especially needed for those parents who may be suffering deprivation, financial hardship, relationship breakdown, social isolation, domestic abuse, depression, or whose children may be disabled, ill , have special educational needs or belong to an ethnic minority group. The services that this Centre and its partner agencies provide, enable local parents to access informed advice and support including; access to Health Visitors,health services, first aidI.T. and parenting classes, play opportunities, new parent groups, Dads Club, Toy Library and outreach services.
To lose any of these services would have a negative impact on parents and their children.I urge those making budget decisions in Surrey, to maintain and support this Children's Centre.
