This is a petition to protest Bradford Council’s proposal to withdraw Community Development commissioning from the Millan Centre. This could have a detrimental effect for the local community. The Millan Centre provides essential services to local Women to help them gain essential life skills to better their quality of life and contribution to society, including building confidence, developing English language and sewing skills, offering opportunities to network, befriend, support and prevent isolation. As well as services for marginalised Women and Girls, the Millan Centre also provides services for Children. The withdrawing of such funding could ultimately lead to the closure of the centre and could leave service users without a safe space and resource for the local community.
The aim of the petition is for Bradford Council to recognise the work of the Millan Centre, to listen to and acknowledge the needs of local community.
We, as the local community, staff, management committee and stakeholders protest and request for an appeal to reconsider this decision.
