Cuts Campaign - the next steps

The VCS Leadership Group would like to thank everyone who was involved in the Day of Action on 5 November. As you will now be aware the decision was not overturned and DCC announced further cuts to the Children and Young People's Grants and Healthwatch. We will continue to offer support to anyone who wishes to campaign against the cuts but the Leadership Group felt it was important to look at the wider issues.


As part of the next stage we are asking anyone who is responding to the new City Council budget consultation - see article below - to send a copy of their response to Community Action. Our aim is to collate a sector response and offer more options to DCC. As part of this we are also asking any groups who have ideas about DCC services they feel they could deliver more effectively to let us know. We will be announcing some sessions in the near future for anyone who would like to bid for DCC services but needs support to develop their business case.


If you would like any further information please email Matthew Allbones or call 01332 227721.
