Adults and Children’s social care services form a significant part of the Council budget and have been deeply affected by past and present cuts to the Council’s budget. Birmingham against the cuts has set up a Social care working party for service users, carers, workers and anyone else who is interested.
The next meeting of the working party is to take place on Wednesday 15th January at 5.30pm (more details to follow)
The working group has produced two short briefings on the cuts to social care with some ideas for people to use at the budget consultation meetings.
