COUNCIL CUTS THREATEN SERVICES


YOU CAN HELP STOP THE CUTS IN 10 MINUTES

Harrow Council has announced that it must make savings of £25million savings for the next financial year 2015-16.  One of the proposed options to make the savings is to ‘Cut funding provided to the voluntary sector’

This means that ALL Council funding to Mind in Harrow, Harrow Mencap, Harrow CAB, Age UK Harrow and Harrow Carers as well as many other charities totalling over £1million for next year is under threat, which will result in services to thousands of Harrow residents being cut. These potential services cuts are on top of Harrow Council plans to reduce Council Tax Benefit next year.

You can do three things to help STOP THESE CUTS:

1)  Complete the Council’s ‘Take Part’ survey

To have most powerful influence over the proposed cut to all voluntary sector funding, see our notes below.

2) Complete Mind in Harrow’s survey explaining how the proposed cut to all voluntary sector funding could affect you and email back m.gillham@mindinharrow.org.uk

3) Sign our Council Tax Benefit petition.
