The Coalition Government is cutting the money it gives to local councils to provide public services like libraries, children’s centres and care for the elderly and disabled. Brighton and Hove council is being cut harder than many other councils across the south east with an extra £23 million budget shortfall this year.
The Government has also restricted the amount council’s can raise through council tax, forcing them to have a public referendum if they choose to raise it in line with the cost of inflation.
How can Brighton & Hove cope with more budget cuts? Must we accept job losses and reduced services, or can we change the story?
Brighton People’s Assembly is organising this Community Conference – a space for creative dialogue between councillors, trade unions and citizens. This is your chance to have your say and put forward ideas to save the services you care about.
