Jim McGovern backs petition to save Kemback Street Adult Resource Centre
27 July 2012
Dundee West MP Jim McGovern today signed the online petition to save the Kemback Street Adult Resource Centre, which has been signposted for closure by the SNP administration on Dundee City Council.
The centre has over 20 years of experience in supporting people, many with severe disabilities, in the day care centre.
There are fears that the disruption of closing the facilities, expected job losses, and the loss of this experience will have a detrimental impact on those who use the service.
Jim McGovern said;
“It is disgraceful that Dundee City Council is planning to close this crucial centre.
“any of those who use it, and their families, rely on the services the dedicated staff provide.”
“The years of experience and dedication of those who work at the centre do not warrant seeing it closed. This decision is about short term financial gain, not the benefit of service users nor the hardworking staff.”
Mr McGovern concluded,
“I oppose the plans to close this centre, and I will be pressing the SNP administration on Dundee City Council to change their plans and keep it open.”
