Save Camden Child Care 

Location: UK » London » NW

Camden Council are planning to cut £5 million from play services and £12 million from early years services over the next three years.

Under the proposals, most 3 and 4 year olds will see free nursery education provision reduced from 25 hours to the statutory minimum of 15 hours. All council play centres will close, and the council will stop providing breakfast and after school clubs in schools.

We are parents and local residents who are campaigning against these cuts.

These services are the only substantial source of affordable childcare in the borough. They are invaluable to working families and vital in helping women return to work. Camden play centres provide a crucial community link for the parents of young children. They are a key site for promoting social cohesion and fostering community understanding.
