A Lifelong Guarantee

It's getting harder to meet demand for public services. More people need more help and in many cases, their needs are more complex than they've ever been. At the same time, the Government has cut our funding in half which means that there simply isn't enough money to properly meet everyone's needs. Nowhere is this more acutely felt than in adult social care. Indeed, many councils are starting to worry that these services could become unsustainable.

This situation feeds into concerns that the Government do still not fully grasp the pressures local authorities across the country are facing. And it’s not just local government feeling the pressure. For example, the huge systemic problems in adult social care also place immense strain on our NHS. 

Here in Brent, we are determined to protect these essential services so that elderly residents can continue living active, independent and dignified lives. Such is the strength of feeling that, earlier this year, Full Council passed a cross-party motion calling on the Government to properly fund our health and social care services. And last month, Cllr Reg Colwill, Leader of the Conservative Group, and I, followed up with a joint letter to Sajid Javid MP, Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, on our future funding needs.

Hopefully, the Government will hear what we’re saying and recognise that much more needs to be done. And whether or not we receive clarification from the Secretary of State, I will continue to fight on behalf of all Brent residents for a lifelong guarantee of access to public services of the highest possible quality.

I am still waiting to be convinced that the current council cabinet is fighting hard to ensure that all Brent residents get access to public services of the highest quality. All they are getting at present are excuses about why streets and roads can't be cleaned. Brent residents want effort, not excuses Cllr Butt.

Keep up the good work. It feels like there has never been more urgency to raise the profile of the issue of health and social care funding. Well done for achieving cross party consensus - this can be especially tricky so its a big achievement
