More details from petition creator

Surrey County Council intend to cut a budget of £186,000 to Woking Borough Council which is used to support vulnerable people in Sheltered Accommodation. This means that elderley and fragile people living alone will be abandoned unless they are seriously ill. We must keep our team of Home Support workers who work tirelessly to look after our elderly and fragile citizens.
