Massive cash injection for Woodthorpe and Wybourn

Thursday, January 16, 2003

Meg Munn, Labour and Co-operative MP for Sheffield Heeley has today welcomed the announcement of £1.5million of Government cash for the Sure start project in Woodthorpe and Wybourn.

The local community formed a partnership, which has been working extremely hard consulting local people and putting together a detailed plan of the services they need to ensure the children there have the chance of a good start in life (which is where the name of the project comes from).

Baroness Ashton has announced a grant of £1,455,131 over the next three years.

The partnership can start to roll out its services to the 756 children under four and their families living in the areas and, in doing so, contribute to the Government"s aim of improving the health and well-being of families and young children and supporting parents to nurture and care for their children and develop their readiness to learn.

On hearing the news Meg said "I am totally delighted that the Labour Government is giving local people such tremendous resources to help them to help our children and their families. Sure start has been a great success wherever it has been set up in the country and I look forward to watching this particular project develop and to seeing the children reaping the benefits."

The most important time in a child’s life is the first few years.
That’s why the Government is setting up Sure Start programmes around the country to
ensure children get better health services and childcare to give them support in their
early years.

In Woodthorpe and Wybourn a panel of local people and workers are meeting to decide
how Sure Start can best help their communities.
Among the things they want to see are: affordable childcare services, better support
for pregnant mothers- before and after the birth, better play facilities, organised events
for families, special services such as debt and relationship counselling as well as advice
on drug and alcohol misuse. As a parent, you can get involved and help make the decisions that will shape your
children’s future or you can join our team as a volunteer. All you have to do is call Melanie
or Stacey on 265 1188.
