ePetition details

Don't cut people out!

We the undersigned petition the council to We believe that vulnerable people should get the support they need to be part of our community. This includes people with a mental illness, learning, physical or sensory disabilities, older people, and carers. We call on the Council to maintain previously ringfenced funding, such as the Mental Health Grant and Supporting People Grant, and not to make cuts to services to less visible groups, such as people with mental health needs. We call on the Council to ask our MPs for York Central and York Outer to raise in Parliament the unfair and economically unsound way in which cuts to Council funding will disproportionately affect support to vulnerable people.
