Save Our Children's Centres

Barnsley UNISON and the undersigned call upon Barnsley Council to reverse the decision to cease the provision of day care services in 9 of the town's children's centres.

Why is this important?

The proposed changes to services across our town's children's centres will have a devastating impact on our communities and will leave thousands of children and families without adequate early years services.

How it will be delivered

We plan to deliver the petition to the Leader of the Council
