Stop Norfolk County Council cuts to care services

Councillors Ash Haynes and Elizabeth MorganGreen Party Councillors have launched a campaign to stop Norfolk County Council cuts to care services for the most vulnerable.
A Petition calls on the Labour-led County Council to make social care a “top priority” for the council. The petition focuses on the proposed cuts to personal care budgets, care packages, and preventative services.

The combination of shrinking budgets, an ageing population and increased demand for social care has caused many organisations to warn of a funding crisis. The Local Government Association, for instance, has calculated that many other Council services will have to be cut by 90% by 2020 if Councils are to be able to meet their social care commitments. Meanwhile, Norfolk County Council has assessed the long term care of older people as having the maximum possible level of risk.

  • Before signing the petition, please answer three short questions about social care.

Say no to the Norwich Northern Distributor Road (NDR)

No to NDR imageMassive development and a new 20km road are set to change the face of our fine city for ever, unless we act now. 325 acres of business parks and 10,000 houses just to start. Vast areas of countryside destroyed. Leading to a third ring of development around Norwich. Costing Norfolk residents millions (over £80 million on top of the Government’s £89 million).

You need to lodge an objection to the NDR by 23rd March
