STOP The Closure Of Stirling Rd & Learning Curve Day Centres!
Public Lobby & Protest
Monday 26th November
5.30 - 7pm
Please Come and Join us to STOP this direct ATTACK on the Most Vulnerable People in OUR Community!
There has been coverage of the proposed closures of Stirling Rd Day Centre & Learning Curve Centre in The Ealing Gazette:


The services are provided to promote and support learning disabled people to become more independent and access their community through community-based projects & activities.

Attendees of the centres will see their daily activities curtailed, the centres closed (and as seems most likely sold off) and are to be given a 'personal budget' to 'buy' their own day activities. Since this will inevitably cost them much more than at present they will see less and less of the 'outside world' and their daily lives (not to mention friendships built up over years) will dissolve.

You can still express your'e anger at how services are being decimated locally. You can write to your councillor, MP, the local newspaper or national media.
