BUFA Statement

To whom it may concern,

At an emergency committee meeting on the 24th January 2024, the
Trustees of Bradford under Fives met to discuss the future of the
organisation. They feel that due to the loss of funding during the past 6
months and the current funding outlook for charities, it would be in the
best interest of the organisation to close. This has been a difficult
decision for the trustees to make and has not been taken lightly.

In line with our constitution, 75% of the membership of the association
voted to accept the Trustees recommendation.

Bradford under Fives Association will close its doors for the last time on
the 31st March 2024. The Trustees and staff would like to thank all the
partners and colleagues and members of staff who we have worked with
over the years. But most of all we would like to thank the group leaders
and the families with under-fives in the Bradford district who we have
been privileged to support since 1992.
