A PROTEST against planned cuts to adult social care will take place in Huddersfield tomorrow.
The day of action will start at 11am outside Huddersfield Town Hall.
Organisers said the peaceful protest was against planned learning disability service cuts. Š
The organisers said it “could be our only chance to make a public protest before the council makes its decisions.”
One of the organisations protesting is the Learning Disabilities Coalition, and the protest is part of their Protect the Front Line campaign to make sure that the Government provides enough money so that people with a learning disability have the same choices and chances as everyone else.
Kirklees Council, in a bid to save money, has consulted with around 10,000 people so far over proposed funding changes for adults with disabilities or special needs.
But objectors to the cuts say it will have a massive impact on the quality of life for the users and their families. And they say many will have to rely on costly residential care if the proposed cuts are backed by councillors later this month.
