Properly fund our local councils
Give ALL councils the funding they desperately need to run the vital local services we all depend on, from youth clubs and libraries to adult social care and housing support services.
Why is this important?
People left sleeping on the streets. Elderly people stuck without the care they need. Children with no local library or youth club. Our councils are being pushed to the brink because of years and years of government funding cuts.
The new government has said time and time again that austerity is over. That they’re injecting cash across the country. But so far, they aren’t putting their money where their mouth is.
The new Chancellor Rishi Sunak has got just a few weeks to write his first ever budget. A huge petition, signed by hundreds and thousands of members of the public, telling him to properly fund our councils will show him council funding has to be at the top of his agenda.
