Manchester Sure Start and youth centres
Manchester City Council plans to hand over its 20 youth centres and 36 Sure Start nurseries to partner organisations such as charities. A £1m budget will be in place to commission these services, but where no organisation can be found to take over a youth centre or Sure Start nursery, that service will close.
In addition, early years teachers at Sure Start nurseries will be scrapped, with around 30 jobs going.
Manchester’s Sure Start nurseries provide childcare, health and education services for some of the city’s poorest parents.
