Bradford protests against kids' service cuts
Socialist Party members joined a protest in Bradford city centre on 10 February in response to £13 million of cuts to prevention and early help child services.
Around 50 people attended, including Unite union representatives, council workers and families that have been helped by these services.
A local Unite rep told the protest that 437 people are to lose their jobs.
I spoke at the protest to talk about cuts in Bradford in general. I felt it was important to do so as they all have a knock-on effect.
Especially in the case of the planned 'sustainability and transformation plan' NHS cuts in West Yorkshire, such as reducing the number of stroke units.
Often it is the job of child services to support disabled or ill parents. If there is no support, who is going help stroke victims with childcare and travel during rehabilitation?
