Let’s Keep On Supporting People Campaign pack for 2017-2018
This is a crucial few months for the Supporting People budget, as the Welsh Government continues to look for cost savings across all departments before they table their draft budget in October.
We can already see the impact that the programme is having on preventing homelessness and transforming people’s lives – but we need to encourage Assembly Members and ask them to call on their party leaders to protect the budget. Cymorth Cymru and Community Housing Cymru are dedicated to leading this campaign nationally – but we need your help locally. Assembly Members listen to their constituents and you are in a great position to influence them.
Download the campaign pack, which highlights a number of actions you can take to support the campaign.
We have included some graphics you can use on social media and a banner image for your email signatures. Please pass these on to the people in charge of your social media channels. If you have any problems accessing the files via Dropbox, let us know as soon as possible.
We are hopeful that we can demonstrate just how valued this grant is – and how crucial it is for people on the very edges of society in Wales. The key action over August and September is for providers and landlords to encourage Assembly Members to:
- visit your services
- meet the people helped by Supporting People
- ask their party leaders and finance spokespeople to prioritise SP in budget decisions and negotiations
If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to contact us. We cannot emphasise enough how vital this campaign will be this year, and we need your help to protect the budget.
