A recent proposal by London Councils could result in major cuts to London’s violence against women and girls services.
London Councils provides £26.4m in grants per year to the voluntary sector for supporting the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people across London. Following its AGM in June, London Councils has proposed to return the majority of its grants to individual boroughs to be spent on local priorities, a process it refers to as repatriation.
Please see the following briefing from the Women’s Resource Centre which outlines the proposed changes:
Partners are encouraged to respond to the consultation: http://surveys.ipsosinteractive.com/wix/p633559970.aspx
Please submit responses by Friday 8 October, to be considered at the next LC executive meeting on 19th October.
