"the new procurement system is exactly the same for purchasing toilet rolls as actually changing people lives in Salford…" Christine Brett, Broughton Database

At this morning's full meeting of Salford Council, Mayor Ian Stewart will face questions from Broughton Database about discrimination "against its third sector in favour of organisations from outside Salford".

Salford's `third sector' companies are based in the local community, and employ people from that community to work around reducing poverty and unemployment, and increasing life chances. Why would Salford Council not want to support them?

As Salford Council begins a consultation with Mental Health service users around its proposed axing of three community care workers who organise and support their weekly drop-in sessions, staff have already been told they're getting sacked.

"We want service users, carers, volunteers and the public to have their say" it states on the Council's consultation webpage. But the cut is already a fait accompli. Service users have organised to defend their drop-ins, with a huge public meeting organised for 1st October. They've called themselves the United Services Users Committee, or USUC!
