Save Our Services Public Meeting – Saturday 12th November

Mechanics Institute, Princess Street, Manchester

Saturday 12th November 13.00 – 15.00


Please see below for an invitation to Save our Services, an event organised by Manchester Coalition Against Cuts. There will be some Manchester SWAN members attending this event so please come along and see how we can all unite in the fight against the cuts.

As I am sure you are aware Manchester City Council has announced massive cuts to social care in our city. These cuts will have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable people in our communities at a time when the wider economic crisis is already making the problems that people face much worse. This includes support for people with disabilities, mental health problems, who are homeless, are escaping domestic abuse, teenage parents, the elderly, and people with drug and alcohol dependency issues.

We believe we can stop these cuts. Manchester Coalition Against Cuts has organised a public event to bring together people from as many of the affected services as possible. We are extending the invitation to workers, service users, trade unions and anyone that wants to protect these vital services.

If you are able to attend please confirm by e-mailing or texting your name, organisation (if any) and how many will be attending to, or 07916 725 396.

Finally, if you are able to get any funds from your union branch or wish to donate as an individual to the campaign please get in touch.

Yours sincerely
Manchester Coalition Against Cuts

N.B. This is a child friendly meeting. We do not mind children making a bit of noise in the meeting. Although we cannot afford professional childcare, there will also be people helping to organise a child friendly zone adjacent to the meeting room.

We want to develop a network of service users, practicitioners, academics and students to support radical and progressive social work. We need a social work that is ready to challenge oppressive practice, that means working collectively across the country and internationally to advance Social Work.
