Children's Centres: Tamworth

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 30 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how many children's centres there are in Tamworth constituency; and what assessment he has made of the adequacy of such provision for children under five in Tamworth. (282582)

Tamworth currently has six designated Sure Start children's centres, offering access to services to over 6,300 children under five and their families.

In general Staffordshire is making good progress with the establishment and development of children's centres. It is a major programme which I understand has been well managed, with good community involvement, consultation and links to extended services in schools.
