Letter to families and carers

 

Statement on the Article in The South London Press – 19 July 2019

It was a matter of great regret for the Trustees that it had to make the decision to cease child care provision at Cherry Tree. It was clear to them that the provision was not financially viable. The Trustees have carefully considered the submissions made by the Cherry Tree Action Group and understand their genuinely held concerns about the loss of this excellent service.

Both the council and Trust have had to face some very difficult decisions given the long period of austerity. The need for Lambeth to rationalise Childrens Services provision meant that they would no longer share the space at Cherry Tree, meaning the loss of their financial contribution to running the building.

The Trust recognises that the decision will have disappointed families, but we have striven to provide support with alternative placements either at the Rosendale site or by liaising with other providers. The total number of SEN places has been maintained. We have also managed to re-deploy most of the staff from Cherry Tree to Rosendale. Some have been pleased to take the opportunity to retire.

Cherry Tree will close in August as planned.
