Father’s Day: Join us at 10 Downing Street with your Petition!

No Cuts For Kids is a campaign to ensure that Sure Start Children’s Centres continue to serve all our children.

Please join us for our Father’s Day petition hand-in at No.10 Downing Street. Let’s show Prime Minister David Cameron who cares.

On Sunday 19th June at 11am we will be at 10 Downing Street to hand in petitions from all over the country, asking the government to ringfence the Sure Start budget and safeguard standards.

Give your campaign national coverage
Lobbying local councils is vitally important, but this is also an issue for central government.

On Mother’s Day we presented over 52,000 signatures to Downing Street and received a huge amount of coverage, making Sure Start a key issue in the recent local elections, and the buzzword on MPs’ lips.

Father’s Day will be even bigger. This is our direct appeal to David Cameron, as a dad, to do the decent thing and care for our children.

* Email us details of your campaign…….. Add your support via email here.

* Start your local petition now…. Go to ipetitions.com and get started.

We must act now
By imposing horrific cuts, and not obliging councils to make adequate provision for childrens’ services, this government is dodging its responsibility – the responsibility it holds to protect and nurture our most important assets, our children.

Even when local councils say they are keeping centres open, the cutbacks are so harsh that:
* centres open sporadically or hardly at all;
* professional Sure Start positions are advertised as voluntary ones;
* staff are demoralised and standards debased;
* private money must be relied on to provide basic services;
* or, even worse, unqualified, busy parents are left to run these centres themselves.

Please email us about your campaign so we can co-ordinate action, and guarantee you a place on the doorstep of 10 Downing Street here

  1. Remember when sure start workers, teachers, nurses, doctors and lollipop ladies crashed the stock market, wiped out banks, took billions in bonuses and paid no tax? No, me neither. Leave public services alone, especially those for kids.
