    As the UK has now left the EU, Redditch Liberal Democrats make this promise to all EU citizens living in Redditch and the Villages: we will always welcome you in our town and, along with Liberal Democrats across the country, we will continue to fight for your rights.

    We know that for many of you these are worrying and uncertain times. You moved to Redditch and made it your home. You shared your culture with us and you continue to make a wonderful contribution to our society.

    We live in turbulent times.

    With the Conservative party in control of the country, County and Borough we need to hold them to account. We need to challenge every decision that has a detrimental impact on the people of Redditch.

    Be that to cut funding to our vital Voluntary and Community Sector, or to scrap A&E waiting targets, or to cut vital services to vulnerable local people, we need people like you to hold them to account.

    Redditch Liberal Democrats have today launched a short survey aimed at mapping out the size, scale and focus of the Voluntary and Community Sector in Redditch.

    The move comes amid Council plans to cut funding to the VCS over the next three years. Spokesperson Andy Thompson said "we want to be an advocate for the VCS in Redditch because we understand how vital voluntary and community organisations are to civic life and to the vulnerable in our communities. In order to do this to the best of our ability we need to understand what sort of organisations we have in Redditch, what they do and how they do it. This short survey is the first step in that process'.

    Redditch Liberal Democrats have met with senior Conservative
    councillor, Cllr Mike Rouse, to set out a compromise position ahead of
    Tuesday's decision regarding the Council's concessionary rents scheme and VCS
    grants funding which it believes will protect and enhance the Voluntary and
    Community Sector in Redditch.

    Speaking at the Overview and Scrutiny meeting at the Council
    House last night, spokesperson Andy Thompson, who has over a decade's
    experience supporting voluntary and community organisations, call the decision
    "short sighted and damaging".

    The council has drawn up plans to cut the grants pot by up
    to 100% for the next financial year as well as charge higher rents for
    voluntary groups who occupy council owned properties as part of drastic
    measures to save the council from bankruptcy.
