Ealing Community Network General Meeting:
This will be held 10.00 am -12.00pm on Wednesday 10 December at Grand Union Village Community Centre in Northolt. This will discuss a collective Voluntary Community Services response to the LBE/CCC & VCS cuts proposals. The ECN Executive Board last week agreed some recommendations to be discussed at this meeting eg. that any VCS funding cuts should be spread over 4 years to give VCS groups time to adjust. Finally though groups will obviously be concerned about potential grant cuts we are also interested in the impact of cuts by LBE in its own services and the impacts these may have on users. LBE also released today a report to the Council Cabinet on the first tranche of LBE direct cuts. These are public documents and you can view the Cabinet report on the LBE website and follow the links through to committee reports and agendas.
