TRAFFORD Council has affirmed its desire for as many people as possible to take part in the children’s centre proposals consultation.

Trafford’s corporate director of children and young people’s service, Deborah Brownlee, said due to requests from parents, a further meeting hosted by executive councillor Linda Blackburn is to be held in the next couple of weeks, in addition to the already confirmed meetings.

A parent representative from each of the children’s centre parent forums will be present at this meeting.

Ms Brownlee said: “The council is committed to providing the best possible, sustainable, effective support to children and families.

“The comments and views of parents and other interested parties are all important and will be carefully considered and discussed before the council makes a final decision.”

Any parent who would like to offer to be their parent forum representative should contact their local children’s centre.
