These centres provide great support & opportunities for building real friendships at a time when families are stretched, both in terms of quality time together & pressure to provide the best for youngsters. The staff have a professional, yet caring approach-lets keep this asset.

I am signing this petition because Sure Start Centres are a nucleus of communities & for some families, particularly vulnerable families, these centres are their life line.
Please do not close any of the Sure Start Centres in Lincolnshire.
Thank you, Alison Ackerman

I have used the surestart centres and they have been an absolute lifeline. I moved to Lincolnshire when I was pregnant and I have no family nearby so it was extremely comforting and helpful to know that there was help and other parents to chat to just around the corner. I am lucky to live in Lincoln so I have access but I am sure there are mums in more remote areas who are equally in need of this support

The grounds that are ran are amazing. It helped but not get postnatal depression as it gave me something to go to. My little boy loves it and he has learnt so much.

I've taken my son to most the groups before he started school in September we started going when he was not even 6 months and I've since had a baby girl who is only 3 month and will be starting to go to the groups again it will be a shame if I could not do the same with my little girl my son and I have made new friends since going and would like my little girl to have the same experience as my son has thanks Alana.
