Following Steve Beynon’s presentation to the voluntary sector at the Riverside Centre in Newport just over a week ago, the proposed Island budget cuts were discussed on the Julian Clegg show on BBC Radio Solent last Tuesday.
If you missed the recording you can listen again, the show is still available on BBC iPlayer until tomorrow (Tuesday 16th).
The first hit is at 40 minutes in and the second at 1 hour 50 mins in.
It’s worth pointing out that that £2m that Steve Beynon refers to for Adult social care is not new money, but money that was previously provided as part of the £5.5m for 2009/10 but yet unallocated (as pointed out by Nichola Goom in her podcast with VB).
