Vital services like children’s centres are being lost across the country – Tracy Brabin
Tracy Brabin MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Early Years, commenting on Action for Children’s research on declining use of children’s centres, said:
“The Tories have slashed funding to local government, and vital services like children’s centres are being lost across the country, with the poorest areas hit the hardest.
“These regressive and unjustifiable cuts have led to hundreds of thousands of children and families losing out on the support that children’s centres can offer.
“The next Labour government will invest in our children and their families, including an extra £500 million in ring-fenced funding for Sure Start.”
