Wirral Council is proposing cuts of over £100million. This includes closing a number of Day Centre’s for people with Learning &/or Physical Disabilities. They also propose to reduce the options for Council residential care (Sylvandale & Girtrell Court) for people with Learning Disabilities. All remaining Day Services face privatisation, via transfer to social enterprise. By reducing staff terms and conditions they undermine a skilled, stable and dedicated group of staff.
The Day Centre’s under threat are:
Moreton and Pensby Wood.
These centres offer a vital service and the changes will have a significant and detrimental impact upon people who use these services and their carers.
We call upon the Council to:
Keep all Day Centres open
For a fully resourced day service
No reduction in residential services
No privatisation of Day Services
No reduction in staff terms & conditions
