Don't Cut Enhanced Sheltered Housing
To Canterbury City Council- We the sighned ask that Enhanced Care for sheltered housing remains in place. This vital service provided by Canterbury City Council in collaboration with Kent County Council since 2000 allowed fragile and older people to independently. Residents and their families fear that removing Enhanced Care will force people into residential care. Cutting Enhanced Care will not save money and will be detrimental to the quality of life of elderly residents. Cutting Enhanced Care is part of the Tory Government's savage attack on funding for local government- a reduction of 40% since 2010 which has seriosly affected services to vulnerable people. We call on Canterbury City Councillors to underwrite this essential service and campaign with the community for the required funding- opposing KCC cuts and using all available measures including the Council's reserves.
