Save our services - Isle of Wight
We, the undersigned residents and voters on the Isle of Wight and close friends and family members of Island residents, object to the proposed withdrawal of services to the most vulnerable members of our community. We believe that the proposals to transform social care will not enhance client choice (as claimed), but have the opposite effect. Services will be reduced, their availability severely limited, and vulnerable people of all ages will suffer. We therefore call upon the Isle of Wight Council to reject the Cabinet’s Budget proposals at the Full Council Meeting on 24th February 2010 and, in stead, to consider the Alternative Budgets proposed by opposition councillors and others.
