Save Sotheby Mews Day Centre
This petition had 1,391 supporters
Hi everyone, we need to get 400 more signatures. This will enable us to reach the 2000 mark. Once we have this we are entitled to have a 15 minute debate with the council. ( We have an additional 500 paper signatures separate to the online petition )
Many people have family that go here or know people who go here, Sotheby is their lifeline. Somewhere they can go and feel apart of the Sorheby centre family. Don't let this precious service and building get taken from us all. We will need this centre in the future ourselves!
Your support would be greatly appreciated to help us save Sotheby Mews Day Centre from closure, so please sign and share.
Sotheby Mews provides many different things such as hot meals, exercise classes, day trips, socialising and much more. We need to keep it open to ensure the elderly community are not marginalised.
Sotheby Mews is a LIFELINE for many people.
Islington council wants to change Sotheby Mews into housing. We ARE NOT against this happening, we just want to keep our part of the centre still and the surrounding can be made into housing. They want to move Sotheby Mews to The Roundhouse which a lot of our residents cannot get to. You also have to walk through a park which isn't safe for the residents. The activities and lunch and so on will be on the second floor which is also not suitable especially incase of fire, as many residents wont be able to get down the stairs themselves because of wheelchairs or mobility issues and they wont be able to use the lift! Sotheby Mews is all one floor and is easy access. The roundhouse is also used for children which also wont be suitable for the elderly residents.
Also as 90% of the current residents wont be able to get to the new building, money will then need to be spent on additional carers to go to there homes to help, which will cost the council more.
