THE COUNCIL ARE PROPOSING TO MAKE £90 MILLION CUTS ON PUBLIC SERVICE.

THEY ARE PROPOSING  TO…

  • ·         TO CLOSE ALL COUNCIL YOUTH CLUBS AND SERVICES BY MARCH 31ST 2013
  • ·         TO CLOSE 10 OF THE CITIES LIBRARIES

  • ·         TO CUT SURE START CHILDREN CENTRES BY OVER £4 MILLION
  • ·          TO MAKE OVER 1300 COUNCIL STAFF REDUNDANT

THE COUNCIL IS NOT CONSULTING WITH CHILDREN & YOUNG PEOPLE. IT IS VITAL THAT THEIR VOICE ARE HEARD WHEN SUCH DRASTIC CUTS ARE BEING MADE THAT WILL AFFECT THEIR LIVES, THEIR NEIGHBOURHOODS AND THE COMMUNITY OF NEWCASTLE AS A WHOLE.

THEY ARE THE FUTURE OF THE CITY, LET’S SUPPORT THEM TO ENSURE THEY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN, SOCIALISE, BE CREATIVE, HAVE FUN AND LIVE IN A PLACE THEY ARE PROUD OF.

SAVE OUR SERVICES (SOS) IS A FREE AND & OPEN CAMPAIGN FOR ANYONE WHO OPPOSES ALL CUTS TO PUBLIC SERVICES. WE NEED TO UNITE TO PREVENT THE CLOSURE OF ALL SERVICES AND HELP MAKE THE COUNCIL SET A BUDGET BASED ON THE NEEDS OF ITS CITIZENS AND NOT THE PRESSURE OF CENTRAL GOVERNMENT.
