Save Our Children’s Centres, Southport
Sure Start Children’s Centres in Southport are at serious risk of closure. On 27th January, Sefton Council will meet to decide on the fate of all phase 2 and 3 centres, with a view to slashing funding and closing their doors for good.
These children’s centres offer advice and support to any family who want it. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you live, how much money you have in the bank, or if you are a first time parent or a 5th, they are there for ALL OF US, and now we need to be there for them.
Whether you use these invaluable resources or not, this is a time to take a stand and say to Sefton Council “No More”. They have been steadily eroding services to families in this town for years and it is time to tell these councillors, who WE elected to serve OUR interests that we have had enough.
Contact the press, contact your local councillor, attend the public demonstration, and TAKE A STAND alongside the other families in this town before Southport officially becomes a “families not welcome” zone.
The government says Every Child Matters. Are children in Southport less deserving than the rest of the country?
