Fae Gilfillan started this petition to Suffolk County Council

Suffolk County Council is attempting to change the way it provides children's services in our area, and this will impact us in the following ways: 

1. The loss of some services at the Children's Centres that will remain open (such as Baby Sensory, Messy Play and Dad's Group at The Phoenix Centre in Sudbury). 

2. The closure of some Centres. 

3. The 'repurposing' of other Children's Centres, such as Cornfields in Great Cornard. These will either become nurseries or family hubs, where families of children up to the age of 19 (rather than just preschoolers) will access services, putting these Centres under considerable strain.

We demand that services at Sudbury's Phoenix Centre are restored (Baby Sensory, Messy Play and Dad's Club) with funding for these sessions protected, and Cornfields to remain a traditional Children's Centre. 

Services such as Baby Sensory remain a lifeline for mums who need a cost-free reason to get out of the house with their new babies and meet other mums. Motherhood is tough, and sessions such as these help protect the mental health of mothers, build vital networks amongst mums and offer a stimulating and safe environment for babies to play, learn and explore.
