Defend Day Centres: what you can do

Sign the petition and get as many other people to sign it as you can. (If you need a copy call 07817434240, email or print copies yourself.)

Write to your councillors (, and to Councillor Warmisham and Councillor Merry. You can use the following text if you don't want to write your own.

I am writing to you out of concern.
I have recently become aware that the Council is proposing to withdraw funding from two of the Day Centres that provide support for Elderly People and those with Learning Disabilities.
Last February Council Leader John Merry declared that the Council would do all it can to protect the most vulnerable from cuts.
I believe this proposal if implemented would go directly against that statement.
I would ask you to use your influence to try and ensure that these proposals are not implemented.
Please could you respond to this letter by contacting me directly at the address above.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Yours sincerely,
