Children's centres review

Protest at Council plans for cuts to Children's Centres

Blackpool Council’s Executive Committee will be considering proposals to slash £1m from children’s centre provisions in Blackpool on Monday evening, 8th July. These proposals are being sold to you, and the wider public, as the centres being “revolutionised”, when in reality these proposals are yet another example of central government's austerity and cuts agenda. If implemented this will be a further Labour led council doing the dirty work of a failing Tory government.

We will be protesting outside Blackpool Town Hall at 5.30pm on Monday 8th July.
Please come along and support us and all the affected staff, children and families.


Children's Services


Blackpool’s services for children and young people were rated as “inadequate” by the Ofsted inspectors following their visit late last year.
The commissioner returns next week to review progress so far, and we are pleased that trades unions look to be involved in the feedback process this time, and this is where you come in. It’s important that the feedback isn’t just from senior management, it needs to include views from all the stakeholders.


• UNISON will be able to represent your views
• UNISON can make your voice heard
• UNISON will be able to report the opinions of members across childrens services but can also protect their anonymity
