Protect the most vulnerable, stop cuts to advocacy services in Cumbria
Petition Background (Preamble):
With all the radical cuts to services for vulnerable adults and children, it is now more important than ever that they have access to good advocacy to help them speak up for themselves.
The new service outline is a financial cut of over 50% to current advocacy provision within county.
At a time when Cumbria County Council is undertaking an unprecedented upheaval of its social care system, services such as advocacy are more important than ever in ensuring that the rights of some of the most vulnerable people using Council services are protected, and that in the middle of changes to social care provision and social care providers, that people do not fall through gaps.
We would expect that County Council continues its remit to protecting the most vulnerable users of its services.
Please help by signing this petition. Thank you.
• Challenging poverty in all its forms;
