Norwich pensioners urged to have say on cuts

Elderly people will get the chance to quiz council officers and councillors considering cuts to the adult social care budget.

The next meeting of the Norwich Older People's Forum (NOPF) on Friday (November 19) will focus on how the comprehensive spending review is likely to see cuts in care.

Representatives from Norfolk County Council will be at the meeting, which will run from 10am in Blackfriars Hall in St Andrew's Plain.

Lady Joyce Hopwood, chairman of the NOPF, said: 'We know that major cuts are being planned to social care for older people.

'You can influence which cuts are put in place and how. I would urge everyone to come along and have your say to those in charge of social care at Norfolk County Council.'
