COVENTRY PEOPLE NEED QUALITY JOBS
Public Meeting for Service Users, Staff, Carers and all Coventry Residents
Service users, carers and Council staff are dismayed that the Council’s Place Directorate are proposing to discontinue flagship services for vulnerable adults & young people with learning disabilities, autism and severe and enduring mental ill health. In addition the proposals could implement post cuts at the highly successful Job Shop.
These services are delivered by some of the most able, dedicated and expert staff in their field, not just in Coventry but nationally. TESS won a national Award for its service only last year, winning Team of the Year from the British Association for Supported Employment (BASE) for its outstanding work in encouraging employers to employ those furthest from the labour market. There are currently no other services able to continue this work. The impact for the most vulnerable, their families and employers will be significant.
Please help us to save these services. Ensure all Coventry residents have access to quality jobs, training and education opportunities!
