Dear Ms Walker,
Thank you for your email dated 8 February 2012 requesting a list of Sure
Start Children's Centres in the UK.

The information requested can be found in the attached spreadsheet.

The data in the spreadsheet was extracted from the Department for
Education’s Sure Start On database.  The information in the data base is
constantly changing as local authorities use it to maintain information
about their children’s centres.

 

The children’s centre data is uploaded overnight to the Directgov website
and can be found at;

 

[1]http://childrenscentresfinder.direct.gov...

 

Enquiries about the data itself should be directed to the children’s
centre or the local authority.
 

Yours sincerely,

Sam Forster

Hello Amanda, sorry you couldn’t access the children’s centre contact
details file that was sent to you.

I attach a few different versions of the same data, with the hope that you
will be able to open at least one of them.

I suggest that you need to save each of these files first, and then open
Excel in order to open and view these files.

Do get back to me if you need any further help opening them.

Best regards,

Ali
