Save Lancaster House

"Lancaster House Under Threat - Please Show YOUR Support & Sign this petition - Thank You so much! 

On the 17th of June, Positive Lifestyles received news that Supporting People were recommending to Salford City Council that funding should be withdrawn for Lancaster House.  Salford Council will be making its decision in the afternoon of Monday 1st August. There will be a March and Demo on that day. Please come along and join in. If this decision is put through the council, Lancaster House will close on the 30th September resulting in 38 Service Users back out into uncertainty and 14 members of staff out of work. The service users have begun the campaign to save our home and are working non-stop not just to save the roof over our heads but a safe place for future generations of Salford residents. This has involved speaking to the press and also lobbying MP's and Councillors. We will not stop until we have firm guarantees from the council that our home is safe and that this vital service will remain open to us and also to the people of Salford. If you wish to support the campaign or hear the latest news we would love to hear from you, you can join our Twitter or Facebook pages or please e-mail me We will save our home and we will save this successful service."
