Cuts Watch #43: Local services face closure
Spending cuts continue to hit local services:
- The Grimsby Telegraph report that Government cutbacks have left the council with 19 per cent less to spend on adult learners. As a result, the Whitgift Community Learning Centre, which provides adult education – including help with english and maths – is facing closure.
- In Waltham Forest £30 million looks likely to be cut from affordable housing.
- Gloustershire children’s service department has frozen all spending, and it has been suggested that £76 million worth of cuts are being planned.
If you receive reports of cuts locally, please let us know.
