A Sure Start children’s centre in Wisbech has received the EQualities Award.

It was the Wisbech South Children’s Centre’s efforts to narrow the gap with under-represented user groups and foster good relations with different communities that identified their commitment to equality.

They were also commended for offering a range of programmes to suit the diverse needs of service users and for celebrating diversity within their daily activities.

The centre received a wall plaque to mark their achievement.

Gemma Ward, centre manager, said: “There was a lot of criteria we had to fulfil. It’s something to be proud of.”

The centre, in Elizabeth Terrace, offers a range of groups and programmes, from a dad’s group to Stay and Play, a Bumps and Beyond group for young parents and Ambers, a group for migrant families.

The Sure Start Centres in March and Chatteris, run by charity Ormiston Children and Families Trust, have also received the EQualities Award for their hard work in breaking down barriers.
