Our local authority has cut its funding for specialist early years support. They have assured me that staff at Sure Start centres will now be providing the same service. The staff at the centre are lovely but somewhat lacking in expertise - one person asked me when my daughter was going to get better from her Downs Syndrome........

Oh hell - that sounds like a complete lack of expertise to me!! These cuts just don't seem fair do they. What on earth are we supposed to do - are they going to increase our carer's allowance maybe so we then have to go and support our children in school??

Oh so that's why they've kept the SureStart centres open then? I thought there must be a catch. No disrespect to the staff there as again all the staff at the centres we've had contact with have been great, but it must be a lower cost provider. What a shame.
