Thea Simpson started this petition to The Alwoodley Community

As of the 30th of April 2021, the families of Alwoodley are having to say their goodbyes to the beloved Little Giggles After-school club based in Alwoodley Primary School. Unfortunately since the beginning of the pandemic, which left parents working from home, losing jobs or being made redundant, after school care was not longer a priority (which is understandable). Numbers at the setting began to decline and when the government decided to close schools, Little Giggles had to shut it doors and wait for what seemed like a miracle. Opening back up at the beginning of 2021, Little Giggles was faced with a sharper decline in numbers meaning they were struggling to stay afloat and finding it difficult to break even most months. No one could of foreseen this closure happening, but since the announcement that the three year strong setting was closing its doors permanently at the end of April, families that use the setting regularly or will need the setting in September have expressed their concerns about what on earth they are going to do once Little Giggles is no more. The other after school facilities in the community are turning parents away due to being at capacity or not offering wrap around care for the children at Alwoodley, some parents do not feel comfortable sending their child/ children to a childminder or nanny and do not have the space (due to working from home) to have a babysitter look after the children from their home environments. We are asking people to share, support and sign this petition to see if we can band together, as the community that loves and needs Little Giggles After-School Club, to try and keep the setting open for all the families and future families that need this wrap around care! We are asking for support and guidance from Alwoodley Primary School, any empty spaces that Little Giggles could utilise and any help or advice people can offer! 

Our children need this setting.
