Don't close Sure Start Children's Centres in Rotherham
Withdraw the plans to close the following 13 centres- Brampton Cortonwood, Dinnington, Kimberworth, Marcliff, Meadows, Park View, Rockingham, Ryton Brook, Silver Birch, Sue Walker, Thorpe Hesley, Thurcroft and Wath Victoria.
Why is this important?
This plan will decimate early years provision in the town. The council plans to reduce the number of centres from 22 to 9- leaving many areas without provision, staff facing redudancy, and families losing essential services in their community. We are holding a family event on Saturday 29 March which will start with a march from the Town Hall at 12 heading to All Saints Square for live music, face painting, speakers and more!
Public consultation meetings are being held in the coming months-
How it will be delivered
This petition forms part of our campaign against the closures that we will be running over the coming months. When you have signed please take a few minutes to complete the Council's consultation-
