budget - SEN services - Cllr Jos Saunders - new Cabinet for CEC

Dear Editor
All Cheshire East Conservatives are delighted by the £12 million fund that this Government has allocated to Family Hubs.

Some of this money is now coming to Cheshire East.

In February, Cheshire East Council which is controlled by a Labour/Independent coalition proposed a budget which included cuts to Early Help in Children’s Services.

The Conservative group voted against.

We are all delighted by the news that the cuts are being mitigated by this grant from Government which gives Cheshire East up to £1 million to formulate our own Family Hubs.

All of the Conservative Cheshire East Councillors congratulate the Officers who formulated this bid which will help ameliorate the cuts in Council funding.


Cllr Jos Saunders
Cheshire East Council

    Twelve million is not a great deal when shared out among the sixty million population. It could have been a lot more if the government had recovered the twenty billion paid out to fraudulent furlough scams and for defective PPE equipment. If that had been recovered it would have been more than the government is taking in the extra National Insurance we are having to pay.
