I visited Secret Garden Sure Start Centre in Barnsley yesterday and heard from just a few of the thousands of families under pressure across the country.
From cuts to Sure Start funding to cuts to tax credits, families are getting a raw deal from this Conservative-led Government. Children and families are bearing the brunt of the Tory-led Government’s cuts and I think it’s important to take a stand.
The Conservative-led Government's cuts mean that across the country Sure Start centres are under threat and David Cameron has broken his promise to protect them.
The Tory-led government has cut Labour’s grants to help children and young people in Barnsley by a quarter. Yet despite this, your Labour council are protecting Sure Starts next year.
If I’m elected as MP for Barnsley Central on Thursday, I’ll stand up for families and the services they rely on and I’ll always stand up for Barnsley.
