18th February at 5.30 pm
Town Hall, Weston super Mare
The council will meet to approve their budget for the forthcoming year, which includes £11 million of cuts to services affecting some of our most vulnerable residents. The proposed cuts include:
- Cuts to funding for Children in Care
- Cuts to funding for Disabled Children
- Reductions to Adult Care and Supporting People services
- 50 Full-time Job losses
- More jobs and services transferred to private contractor Agilisys
The council's reserves have shot up to £11.6 million but they say they can't afford to pay the Living Wage, which would cost them £435,000.
Meet outside the Town Hall in Weston at 5.30 pm
Let's show the councillors what we think.
