Back to Highfield Road Childrens' Centre

Friday saw me back to Highfield Road Childrens Centre today, which I had the privilige of opening in 2007. The team here have done an incredible job enriching facilities at the centre for their 144 young people, and running an amazing family support service including health services and supporting parents in their first steps back to work.

We'll be working closer in the future to make sure local services are coordinating their support to parents better.

One of the consistent messages coming back from parents is the need for better sports facilities including a womens' only gym. I'll be talking to some local womens' groups to try and accelerate that idea in the weeks to come.
