Sure Start Centres

Asked why the Department for Education has confirmed Sure Start closures when the Prime Minister had pledged to protect Sure Start centres before the election, the PMS said that of the figure of 124 fewer Sure Start centres quoted was misleading. Only six centres had closed. The remainder were due to reorganisation and mergers of existing centres, which had brought down the numbers. The PMS said the Early Intervention Grant remained in place and was increasing. Local authorities still had a statutory duty to provide these services and were required to consult with local communities before they made any significant changes.
