More details from petition creator

Due to cuts it is being proposed that the current 58 Children’s Centres are reduced to just 21 across Surrey. This means closing many local Centres that are invaluable to many families & reducing the services that they can provide. These centres will be less accessible for many & affects those that need them the most.

Being a parent is equally a wonderful but challenging time which can lead to parents feeling isolated. Children’s Centres provide somewhere friendly to go & encourages parents to meet other families. Not only do they provide fun groups that are stimulating & educational for young children but they provide much needed advice & support to local families.

In a time where there are so many cuts being made to the Health Visiting services these Centres are more valuable now to families than ever before. Closing them would be such a loss to many & would put more pressure on other services that are already struggling.

Sadly Mytchett Children's Centre is one of the centres due to close. I speak for myself & many others in saying that it would be devastating to see our local Children's Centre go. Please join me in signing this petition to keep Mytchett Childrens Centre running.
