Sheltered Housing schemes residents will be joined on Wednesday by local campaigners opposed to East Riding Council proposals which would see warden numbers in Sheltered slashed. 

In July, ERYC proposed a shake up of arrangements for the area’s Sheltered Housing schemes which would see 53 dedicated wardens being replaced by 11 mobile wardens. 

It is feared that the proposals could also see properties being sold into the private sector and other facilities being converted to treat NHS patients in need of convalescence.

Labour’s said;

“People are really concerned about these proposals.  Most people we’ve spoken to have said things should be left as they are.” 

“People are convinced that this is about financial pressures rather than a desire to improve services. 

“We think the Council should withdraw these proposals forthwith.  Vulnerable people are suffering unnecessary stress and should not be put through this.”

have Dismissed claims they are ‘Axing Wardens’ from sheltered housing, saying they are just looking to create ‘new roles’.

Following increasing  pressure additional time was added to a public consultation period, something that was welcomed by key local figures.  

Protesters will meet outside County Hall at 1pm on Wednesday 22 November.

Following the protest they will then put questions to the Council’s Leader, at it’s Full Meeting at 2PM the same day.
