Sheffield group speaks out for the Social Fund
Church Action on Poverty in Sheffield passed a resolution about the Social Fund at their meeting in January 2012. The resolution states that Church Action on Poverty in Sheffield...
- calls upon the Government to recognise the continuing need for an effective safety net to assist vulnerable people facing a desperate need for resources;
- is deeply concerned at Government plans to abandon most aspects of the present Social Fund and to delegate responsibility to local authorities without any ring fencing; and
- calls upon the Government to ringfence resources allocated to local authorities for the safety net.
They have sent the statement to their local MP, Paul Blomfield, and asked him to pass the resolution on to DWP Ministers.
