Petition to defend wardens for Barnet sheltered housing

Please sign up to the petition set up by a Barnet resident which reads
We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Stop the closure of sheltered housing schemes.
And explains further:
More and More Councils are closing sheltered housing Schemes, Barnet being one that is considering it now, It is nothing short of Elder Abuse, Right now we have Laws that Protect our animals, but not our old people, Can this be right?
Sign the petition here.

The wardens for Barnet council's sheltered housing schemes are threatened with removal as part of budget cuts, and replacement by a 'floating' warden scheme, thus effectively ending the sheltered nature of sheltered housing altogether.

Stopping a service amounts to abuse? Oh please! This is 2009, not 1949.
