Protect Social Care in Angus

Protect Social Care in Angus

We call on Angus Council and the Integrated Joint Board to halt planned changes, service cuts and privatised Social Care.

Why is this important?

On the 1st of July 2017, Angus Council plan to commence the implementation of proposals which will see social care provision changed, services cut and privatised. ‎The number of staff responding to Community Alarm calls will be cut during the day, working hours will be cut, some staff will be forced to provide a car to undertake their duties and there will be approximately 170 job losses. All of this will impact on the most vulnerable members of our community.

We believe that the evidence does not exist to support these plans or to implement them safely. We believe that private sector interest to provide social care in rural Angus just isn't there. Care for profit is wrong. We call on Angus Council and the Integrated Joint Board to halt these plans and to reassess this strategy.

Cuts to vital care services will impact on the most vulnerable members of our community.

Reasons for signing

  • Council Tax payers in Angus might want to question their councillors on what exactly this means? "It is recommended that the Integration Joint Board:- (i) notes the progress being made in strategic planning in the areas of ... the Market Facilitation Strategy." What precisely is a " Market Facilitation Strategy"??
  • "Care for profit is wrong". Exactly. Enough is enough. Angus Council have to rethink on this.
  • I believe in people first and Public Services over Private Profit!
