Save Cedar House Rotherham United Kingdom

This petition had 2,835 supporters

Cedar House is a place for people with mental health problems, alcohol/drug issues and family problems. This place is respite for people to use, for up to a week, but can be extended due to exceptional circumstances i.e medication change that has a severe reaction to the patient, affecting their mental ability. The issue with this service is that it's not utilised as much as it could be and there are many people who don't even know it exists. I know this from experience as my father has used this facility. The council was given this building to help people with mental health issues and for it not to be purchased by the public sector to gain money for the council. Now the council are attempting to sell this place and yet again the most vulnerable in Rotherham will suffer due to neglecting services. Through selling this, they would be removing the only place these people can go for this kind of help. Please sign this petition to help raise awareness of this place and stop the council from selling this respite for these people. Just found out they have given notice to Cedar house for the lease to end this September. This can still be STOPPED! we need over 2000 names to petition against it. Your help would be immensely appreciated for both patients and staff who reside there. Many thanks for your help.
