Millions of pounds have been cut from local authority budgets, resulting in severe cuts to local services. And now Coventry City Council has announced yet more. Important services will go – services that will affect all children, young people, the elderly and any of us who need support at different times in our lifetime. None of us can afford to let this happen.
What does this mean to you?
- Children’s Centres – shut!
- School Crossing Patrols – sacked!
- Youth Services and Community Centres – closed!
- Public Toilets – boarded up!
1000 local people who deliver these services sacked!………. AND MUCH MORE!
We cannot afford to let this happen. Ordinary people of Coventry did not create this crisis – we must join together and refuse to accept these cuts. There is enough wealth in our society to provide housing, education, employment and care for all – it’s just in the wrong hands!
What can YOU do about it?
Join with us in a campaign to STOP these cuts in our City.
