Sheltered housing: a national battle being fought council by council

If a national debate had been held on the fate of sheltered housing for the elderly, the cuts that are happening around the country could never have gone ahead! Why? Because the vast majority of people want to retain sheltered housing.

Instead, we are having to fight council by council to save sheltered housing, with barely a word about it in the national press. Cuts have gone through in some areas, in a few places, notably Brighton and Hove, they have been fended off, in Barnet we are still battling.

Join our march this Saturday, if you can, or send messges of support to

Saturday 9 May, assemble: 11.30am, Finchley Central tube for a short march through Finchley Church End ward, represented by Barnet council leader Mike Freer, to Victoria Park. Barnet still needs wardens!
