Save Foyle Haven Day Centre

This petition had 154 supporters

Foyle Haven Day Centre faces cuts to its services unless £84,875 in additional funding can be secured. Without full funding the Haven will have to reduce its daily opening hours and close completely on Sundays. 

This will be a blow to everyone who depends on the Haven's services, their families and its dedicated workforce. We cannot afford to lose the services provided by Foyle Haven. 

Unneccesary austerity is increasing poverty, homelessness and mental health issues. Tragically this can lead to addiction, a sense of hopelessness and suicide for some. This is why keeping the Haven open must be a priority. It is simply unacceptable for hundreds of millions to be wasted on RHI rackets and PFI payouts while vital services like those the Haven provide are first on the chopping block. We do not accept funding isn't available. It can be found and must be found.  

The UNISON Community Branch call on the people of Derry and Strabane to back the campaign and sign the petition to fully fund the Haven's services. We call on all the political parties, all elected officials, community organisations, trade unions and civil bodies to ensure long term core funding is secured.
