Important Meeting Tonight - Your Choice Barnet

Bring “Your Choice Barnet” back in-house

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;
  • UNISON representative;
  • 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.
