Petition to oppose cuts to Support Fund to local Advice Centres
You may already be aware that the County Council is proposing to cut its Support Fund with effect from April 2014 and to end advice centre funding from April 2015. The Support Fund provides emergency help to those in dire need, using money which was delegated by the Department of Works and Pensions last year. Advice Centres in Oxfordshire provide in-depth advice, support and advocacy for those living in the most deprived areas of the county, in order to maximise their income, claim any benefits and credits to which they are entitled and reduce their debts.
Anneliese Dodds, who chairs Rose Hill & Donnington Advice Centre has set up an on-line petition to oppose these cuts: we would be very grateful if you would sign it and forward it to others who you think might sign it too. The link is as follows:
