Cuts to Funding for Supported Living Services in Cumbria

Staff who work for Creative Support in Cumbria are facing severe cuts to their pay and conditions. The employer is proposing a reduction in the hourly rate of approximately £1 per hour (from average £9.40 to £8.40), to remove enhancements, reduce annual leave and reduce sick pay. Some staff will lose up to £500 per month.

Cumbria County Council commission this service and have reduced the hourly rate that they will pay to Creative Support from £20 per hour to £16 per hour. UNISON has started a petition calling on the council to increase the funding available for this vital public service. If you live or work in Cumbria, please sign the petition here:
