Stop the closure of the much needed Tower Hamlets Stay and Play service

This petition had 677 supporters

I need your help to save the Stay and Play service in Tower Hamlets, London, which has been informed that they will close in a few weeks. This is an essential service that needs to continue.

The Tower Hamlets Stay and Play service provides much needed support to carers and parents of children with a complex set of disabilities. Families come to the service for a few hours on a Saturday to allow the children to socialise and to just be children. While the carers and parents are able to have a few hours of welcome support from staff at the service during their time at Stay and Play.

I came into contact with the wonderful Stay and Play service on a Saturday afternoon this summer when I baked some cakes for the children, staff and parents to enjoy at a summer party they were holding. I was so impressed by all of the time and energy the dedicated staff had put into making the event a success for the families attending. The team really knew the parents, carers and children they were working for and acted with a warmth and sincerity that I found admirable.
