Government cuts have been talked about for months, but we will soon start to see the effects close to home. Despite claims that they will be fair, it is widely understood that the poorest and most vulnerable will feel the effects of cuts the most.
See ‘The Cost of Cuts’ for details of what to expect.
Keep up to date with local campaigns on the Messenger website. Let us know if there is a cut that will affect you or your group.
Young people ready to campaign
Many cuts will hit young people in education, after school activities, study support and employment. Support their campaign against the cuts by signing their petition – see ‘Youth Campaign to stop cuts’.
Residents are also planning to join city-wide efforts to stop the cuts on 29th January 2011 in a march from Weston Park to the Town Hall from 12noon.
