Research published by Ed Balls and Beverley Hughes this week shows that nine out of ten parents who use Sure Start Children’s Centres are happy with the service. More than 2.3 million children under five and their families now have access to services through nearly 3,000 Children’s Centres across England.
Ten years ago there were no Children’s Centres. Now there are 19 in Hull, and nearly 3,000 across the country. The Government will keep investing in Sure Start because the early years of a child’s life are so important.
