4Corby Children say no MORE cuts!

4Corby Children say no MORE cuts!

We are petitioning Northamptonshire County Council to stop their proposed inequitable cuts of 25% to all Corby children's centre budgets.

Why is this important?

The families of Corby depend upon the services provided by the local children's centres. Data shows that children in Corby statistically fair worse in education, income levels, life expectancy and health. Childrens centres mitigate against these challenges and further cuts to funding are unfair and indefensible.

How it will be delivered

The petition will be delivered to Northamptonshire County Council on 25th April in person to County Hall.

Reasons for signing

  • Children's Centres do great work. They need to be able to continue to do all that work where its needed.
  • NCC has recently signed the 1001 critical days manifesto pledging to support children and families in the early years. These cuts are in direct contradiction to this pledge.
  • I have worked in Corby and managed a Children's Centre in Kettering and am passionate about the need to support the early years of children.
