The Oxford Times: Petition over cuts to county help for homeless grows Petition over cuts to county help for homeless grows

More than 50 people have signed a petition against planned cuts of almost 38 per cent to Oxfordshire County Council’s budget for helping the homeless.

As part of plans to save more than £64m, the council is planning a £1.5m cut to its budget for housing-related support.

A petition launched online at change.org by the charity Oxford Homeless Pathways has received the support of residents and politicians, including Labour city councillor Anne-Marie Canning.

She said: “I think this is the wrong time to cut the homelessness budget.”
