Thursday 11th April 2013, 7pm at the Greek Cypriot Centre, Britannia Road, N12
Barnet Council created the Local
Authority Trading Company “Your Choice Barnet” to provide social care
for adults with learning and physical disabilities. After only a year
the company is in trouble and planning to reduce the quality of
services, and Barnet Homes is preparing to pay a £1 million bail-out.
Find out more about this scandal and why
we are calling for Barnet Council to bring “Your Choice Barnet” back
in-house at our public meeting.
Confirmed speakers include:
John Sullivan, parent and carer of a service user of the Your Choice day centre;
Roger Lewis, social worker and disabled, Disabled People Against the Cuts & Social Work Action Network;
Cllr Sachin Rajput, Cabinet member for Adults Social Services was
invited but declined; we hope he may still change his mind and be part
of the panel.
Panel to be followed by open discussion.
Come and have your say on bringing this vital service back in-house, as promised by councillors before they outsourced it. What you can do: Forward this to your networks or
print the leaflet and invite your neighbours; sign the petition and
spread it among your friends and participate in the e-mail campaign.
