We the undersigned petition the council to Reconsider the intention of Cheshire east council to withdraw the commissioning for groups involving adults with health and learning difficulties after 31/3/2018 run by Cheshire centre go independent living in Crewe handforth and Macclesfield. Titled “Good Company. “ Involving 102+ adults over 19 years of age .

Good company was set up as an early intervention and prevention group in adult services , to promote self worth & well being in vulnerable adults with numerous disabilities. Meeting to socialise, craft,arts, organised trips , meals , cinema etc . Legislation promotes access for all adults with learning difficulties in order to prevent more expensive services to be called into action . To cancel these groups is causing trauma and denying their respect and dignity in forming friendship groups and the right as an adult to socialise independently within a safe environment whilst gaining confidence and life’s experiences.

This ePetition ran from 08/01/2018 to 20/02/2018 and has now finished.
