Political row over future of children's centres in Barnet

24th September 2012

Labour councillors have criticised the Conservative-managed London Borough of Barnet's plans to make cuts to children's centre funding by 2015.

The amount of children's centres in Barnet has decreased from 21 to 13 and the council wants to cut half a million pounds from children's centre funding in the next three years, along with £2.18 million from early intervention and prevention spending. Ross Houston, Barnet Labour group’s children’s services spokesperson, said: 
"Our children’s centres already deliver excellent services on a shoestring to vulnerable children and to those families most in need. They deserve to be supported, not whittled away."
