I thought the Torys said sure starts were safe?

    Pretty sure they said they would be making cutbacks on Surestart. Such a shame :(

    They dont know the true value of these places, they cut them because they are easy targets.

    I asked my HV about this when it first came out that they may be making cuts-and she told me that sure start centres were only ever meant to be for 10 years anyway...

    I think I'll end up finding out about my job while on maternity leave. We're supposed to have some idea of cuts down here in February I think.

    I went to my local surestart centre last week and was told they are waiting to hear if it will stay open. It was only opened 6 months ago!
    Mind you I have to say it doesn't offer a lot for me - they have one baby club and a toddler tap dance. Was it necessary to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds building and setting it up just to offer 2 clubs?
    I found they seemed far more interested in getting me to fill in their form which asks everything apart from how often I frequent the loo!
    I don't live in a "deprived" area so I don't get the 10 hours of free childcare offered to unemployed women so they can go to bingo.
