Save the Durham Care Homes

The Durham People’s Assembly are continuing to campaign against the recent Council decision to close the 5 remaining Care Homes run by the Council in the County. Please see the following message for latest details and activities around the campaign.

Dear all.

Just a quick update on some developments regarding the campaign to stop the closures of the remaining council-run care homes.

Firstly, the tireless and inspirational campaigners in Stanhope are holding a protest on at Newtown House Sunday 18th May at 2pm. Please see the attached flyer for more information. Please make every effort you can to attend this demonstration and show your support.

Secondly, we are all going to protest at County Hall at 9am on Wednesday 21st May when the full council meets.

The Facebook event page is here:
Please share this on your page.

Finally, after our inquiries, Durham County Council has admitted that the information on its website regarding the role of full council in the Council’s decision-making procedure was misleading and have now removed it.

Kind regards,

Paul Simpson
