HAFCAC Loses Appeal Against Council Cuts

Published on 11 September 2009

We have had a lot of support from people in different ways since we started two-and-a-half years ago. So thank you all for that.

We will be thinking about how we can keep our campaign alive and kicking looking at other ways to challenge negative policies that affect disabled and older people.
