Last Chance - Radical New Cost Neutral Proposal For Crèches

Last chance to Save Our Crèches! A radical new cost neutral proposal for keeping the crèches open has been worked up by the on behalf of the campaign. Just as a reminder, this campaign has been backed by:

- the Royal College of GPs
- the Royal College of Midwives, and even
- City of Edinburgh Full Council themselves, in a motion passed on 17 December last year.

Deidre Brock, Convenor of the Council's Culture and Leisure Committee kindly agreed to meet Save Our Crèches to discuss any new proposals we had. These had to be cost neutral proposals that would enable the Full Council motion to be met, whilst also generating a saving to EL.

Therefore a completely new proposal has been worked up. You can view it here.

This proposal would enable Edinburgh to retain some crèches, at no further cost to Edinburgh Leisure and so should hopefully ‘tick all necessary boxes’ for CEC and EL. However, it's all down to Cllr Brock now to take forward!

Please give her your support ( ) and show her that this is something YOU care about and not just the 5 of us who were able to meet her in person.
