Oxfordshire County Council will vote to slash £8 million from its children's services budget on 16 February. The county's 44 children's centres, seven early intervention (EIS) hubs and six satellite hubs will shut. 420 highly skilled jobs are at risk.
Our members working in the hubs are striking on 16 February to save the service. Join us on the picket line.
Cuts to children’s early intervention services are the falsest of false economies. Our members work with some of the most marginalised children and young people in our communities. The services they provide are cheap to run. They are preventative. They protect children and young people from more costly interventions like social services, mental health services and prison.
Help us stop the cuts to our children's services
