Kingston charity warns Prime Minister over cuts to voluntary sector
A Kingston charity has warned the Prime Minister that government spending cuts could cost voluntary organisations.
Age Concern chief executive Shane Brennan told David Cameron during a delegation of public service delivery charities at 10 Downing Street last week.
He spoke on the role of voluntary organisations in the reform of public services.
He said: "I was able to explain to the Prime Minister that Kingston borough is unique in that we have already made headway in developing our own local agenda for reform of health and social care.
"At Age Concern Kingston we have strong relationships with GPs, with the council and with the NHS and we are all committed to working for better outcomes for residents.
"It is vital that budgetary cuts are not allowed to undermine or destabilise the good work that is being done."
