Bristol Socialism: BADACA: Campaign Against Social Care Cuts


Last Monday’s BADACA meeting and the two lobbies of the City Council have laid the foundations for a concerted campaign against the council’s threats to close homes and day care facilities for the elderly and vulnerable while at the same time threatening funding to voluntary organisations which provide vital services to these people and their families.

Workers at the council-run services turned out to tell councillors what they thought of these plans. So did workers and representatives of threatened voluntary sector organisations and users of the services. Leading LibDem councillors were uncomfortable facing criticism of their plans. They will need to get used to it because there’s plenty more to come.

At the BADACA meeting on Monday 1st August representatives of service users and workers will report on activities so far. It will be an opportunity to plan the next stage of the campaign to protect social care services in the city from the council’s threatened cuts. Details are below – please try to come along and pass the information on to anyone you know who is effected by these threatened cuts.
