    Notice of Petition


    Received from Ms Katy King, 1874 signatures.


    ‘From pregnancy to primary schools, Sure Start Children’s Centres support children and their parents and carers. They offer services for all, but especially for families at times when life is a struggle. Surrey County Council proposes to cut £2.2m from these vital support services when families need them most. They are safe, welcoming, supportive environments for parents with young children who need help. These centres are essential to making sure everyone gets a fair start in life. They are efficiently run, providing centralised resources in local communities, and making effective use of shared locations (such as school premises), shared time (such as allowing other groups to use the centres) and trained volunteers (such as Peer Supporters at the breast-feeding support service). More cuts be matched by efficiency savings; the only outcome will be that vital support to families will have to be discontinued, increasing demand on the already struggling NHS’.


    A response will be tabled at the meeting.


    That the response, attached to this decision sheet as Appendix 1, be approved.
