Candidate visits Children 1st

Local Labour Candidate Carol Mochan dropped in on Children 1st, based in Girvan Primary, last week to see at first hand the excellent work they do. Pictured from left to right are Tracy Stephen – Service Manager, Carol Mochan, Edie Scobie – Team Leader and Frances Donnelly – Childcare Co-ordinator.

Carol said; “Children 1st is Scotland’s National Children’s charity with a vision of ‘a happy, healthy, safe and secure childhood for every child and young person in Scotland’. The Children 1st Family Support Service in South Ayrshire covers Girvan and Maybole and provides essential community based support to children and their families.

“When I met with Tracy and her team I heard about all their work including provision of support at home, childcare, and individual support to children and young people. We also discussed their current funding and the campaigns they are currently promoting to make sure children are protected and supported. We should all be proud of the work carried out by Children 1st in South Ayrshire. They deserve every support in taking that work forward.”
