Old Parish Church, Bellfield Street.
Speakers John Murdoch – disabled activist and a speaker from UNISON
Edinburgh’s Save Our Homecare Services Campaign will holding a public meeting in Portobello as we continue to fight against the Council’s cost cutting and privatisation agenda that has left some of Edinburgh’s most vunerable citizens at risk. As the City of Edinburgh continues its drive to privatise 75% of homecare services and moves to extend service cuts to those with learning disabilities and mental health conditions we continue to recieve reports of the devastating effects on service users. These include elderly people having to go with inadequate food as support slots are cut to 15mins and an increase in medication and meals getting missed altogether as low cost private care companies frequently fall short of care standards.
Please attend this public meeting and get involved in the campaign.
Remember, most of us will experience old age or disability at some stage in our lives. We need to act now to defend services before its too late.
