Valerie visits Palfrey Sure Start

It was a pleasure to visit Palfrey Sure Start’s mother and baby clinic on Thursday 18 May 2017 to meet its hardworking team and see the children enjoying themselves.


The number of designated Sure Start children’s centres has been slashed by a third since the Tories came to power. I have raised the need to protect sure starts in the House of Commons on numerous occasions, most recently to the Leader of the House in April.


Sure Starts provide vital services for the whole family. It was the Labour Party that introduced Sure Start’s and is only the Labour Party who will protect them.
