Parents of children with disabilities were furious when they heard that Salford Council was intending to shut down short term respite centre facilities at The Grange – and, instead move their kids into the adult facility at Granville or with foster carers.

The parents, together with trade unionists and community activists, launched the Save The Grange campaign which has held protests, confrontations with Salford City Mayor Ian Stewart and asked searching questions of the proposals which still have no thorough answers (for background see previous Salford Star articles – click here and click here and click here).

Now, the Save The Grange campaign is holding a Coffee Morning, to get together with other families of children with disabilities who have been affected by Salford Council cuts to their services.

"This event is for all families with children with disabilities, campaign supporters and any others who are concerned about the cuts that have taken place to children with disabilities in recent years" states the campaign "These include teaching support services, social work, starting life well services, as well as other activities and support. Please come along, everyone will be welcome."

As Salford Mayor, Ian Stewart, says, "Because of Government cuts, we all know that the Council is going to look very different in the future…"

With another £75million of cuts coming over the next three years, will it be possible for him to "make some real savings without hitting services"?

These are the sorts of subjects up for discussion over a coffee and biscuits at the Royal Legion next week…

I Think the best way to make a point with the Labour shower of shites, is to campaign at the pooling stations in the weates bi-election. Tell people whats happening and maybe it will impact on the result

Thank you again Stephen(salford star) for doing a piece yet again to help with our Save the Grange Campaign. You have supported us right from the beginning as well as supporting other causes where Salford City Council have failed the most vulnerable. I hope lots of people come to our coffee morning to discuss all about the cuts and how it has impacted on everyone involved more so the most vulnerable. How are we going to stop this from keep on happening,we need strong parents,professionals and so on to stand up to these people once and for all and let them know we won't go away and that they will have to listen to us one way or the other,before something goes seriously wrong and someone gets hurt due to their cuts.
