Chance to have your say on spending reduced council budget
WYRE Forest residents are being urged to tell the county council how its budget for support services should be spent.
Worcestershire County Council's directorate of adult services and health has a budget of £143 million in 2013/14 but that is due to be slashed by £13 million next year and £32 million by 2016/17.
Council leaders say they will continue to spend about £6.5 million a year in prevention and early help services and local people can have a say on how the money is spent.
Overall, next year's Worcestershire County Council spending budget will be cut by £30 million and then £25 million per year until at least 2016/17.
The consultation runs until January 21, 2014 and can be accessed at worcestershire.gov.uk/futurelives.
