Glasgow City Council has called the meeting to discuss day services in Mitchell Theatre at 7.00 pm on Wednesday 21st August. Councillor Gordon Matheson, Leader of Glasgow City Council has turned down a request that as political head of the council he addresses this event. Day centre users and carers affected by the Labour Group decision to close 3 day centres in Glasgow are appalled that the council leader has such scant regard for the learning disability community in the city and his refusal to meet with the families once again confirms that vulnerable adults are low value citizens on Councillor Matheson's priority list.
Please make sure that all day centre families attend this meeting.
The campaign is asking supporters to be at the Mitchell Theatre from 6.00 pm with our T-shirts, banner and placards to demonstrate opposition to the day centre closures and the PSP farce.
Unlike previous events organised by the families campaigning against the day centre closures Glasgow's elected members have not been made aware of this meeting or invited to attend as observers.
