The City Council is implementing hundreds of millions pounds of cuts involving closure swimming baths, libraries and other Leisure centres. Despite dramatically failing to defend young
children from abuse it is cutting by 65% over two years from the Education Welfare service which checks if children are attending school. This is can be a strong indicator of child abuse
if children do not attend school. These cuts will mean more children will be abused adding to the already scandalously high numbers.

I have heard a report that Albert Bore has overruled a proposal to retain the four Erdington Leisure centres which are now due to close. It appears this information is true and it will have a
dramatic effect in Erdington and we need to launch a campaign to stop these closures.
