Minister of Social Development and Family Services, Cherrie-Ann Crichlow-Cockburn, has sought to clear the air on the status of the National Enrichment Centre in Carlsen Field, saying that there were a number of deficiencies with the building, despite it being launched in 2015.

On Friday, parents of children suffering from cerebral palsy protested outside the Centre, demanding that it be opened.

At a Media Conference on Tuesday, the Minister said the 2015 launch was done without required statutory approvals.

Minister Crichlow-Cockburn said her Ministry has been working on approvals and the Centre should be open by August.

She also said her Ministry has been working with the Ministry of Health to make services available to people living with disabilities.
