Children’s Centres: Public Relations

Volume 508: debated on Monday 22 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families how much has been spent on public relations in respect of Sure Start children's centres in each year since 2004; how much is planned to be spent in 2009-10; and if he will make a statement. (304044)

The amount spent on public relations in respect of Sure Start Children's Centres is set out in the following table. Children's Centres are becoming a universal service for young children and their families—it is important that all families are aware of the services centres offer and are able to access them. So this financial year, a major national communications campaign, including public relations activities, has been funded to raise awareness of children's centres.
