IWD demonstration – Save Croydon Family Justice Centre ~ 8th March 2012

6 March 2012 at 1:12 pm

Croydon Labour Women’s Forum have launched a new campaign to save the Family Justice Centre, at risk of closure from cuts by the Tory Council.

On Thursday 8th March (International Women’s Day), we’ll be holding a rally outside the Family Justice Centre from 5pm to 7pm to call on Councillor Mike Fisher, leader of the Conservative Council, to reverse the cuts and protect the service. Please come along and help us spread the word – see flyer below.

Croydon’s Family Justice Centre provides vital services to people experiencing domestic violence, the majority of whom are women and children. Over 1,000 women a month use the service, and Croydon has the highest reported incidents of domestic violence in London. There are currently 117 women, and 64 children, on the waiting list for the service.

The Tory Council have already cut £96,000 and the centre now faces closure as its services are being slashed with another £96,000 cut this year.

Please support the campaign:
* Sign the petition to reverse the cuts and save the centre, by going to http://croydonfirst.org.uk/family-justice-centre/

Come to the rally on 8th March and bring your family and friends – all welcome.

For more information and to get involved, drop us a line at women@croydonlabour.org.uk
