What this consultation is about
We are facing huge budget cuts and must find ways of saving £157m by 2018.
Reductions in Government grants, inflation and greater demands on areas of our budget for adult social care and vulnerable children mean we must re-think the way we deliver services.
It means some services will remain, some will be run differently but some will have to stop. We don’t want to cut any services but we have no choice.
We wanted to hear your views about proposals to stop funding sheltered housing (with warden and alarm) services after spring 2015 when the current contracts are due to end, saving £788,395 each year.
To help you to understand the proposals there are a range of fact sheets. You can also read the paper submitted to Cabinet on 21 January 2014 which details all the proposed changes.
This consultation is now closed. A report on the results of the consultation was presented to Cabinet, 10 February 2015, agenda item eight.
