Refuge loses £34,000 county council cash

COLCHESTER and Tendring Women’s Refuge will have to make cuts to staff and services after it lost 13 per cent of its funding from Essex County Council.

County Hall has reduced its “supporting people” grants, which includes crisis housing, from £30million to £23million.

But Tendring and Colchester has seen a bigger reduction than other parts of the county despite claims it is the most needy.

My comment: Residents of the area should use the FOI Act to enquire how many of the fat cats who made the decision to reduce funding have had their pay and perks cut by a similar amount.
