Hull North MP Diana Johnson has told the House of Commons about the threat to the services provided to children with disabilities by the Kids Charity in Hull.
Speaking in Business Questions in the House of Commons, Diana Johnson MP asked for a debate on the impact on voluntary and charitable sector services of Government cuts to local authorities.
Diana Johnson MP said: “May we please have a debate about the excellent work that charities, such as KIDS in Hull, do, working with children with disabilities and their families?
"They provide services commissioned by Hull City Council. I am really concerned that, given the cuts to local authorities, great charities like that are now finding that their funding is being cut or reduced and that services to the most vulnerable in our communities will disappear.”
Hull City Council, despite being in one of the most deprived areas on the country, has had among the deepest cuts to Government funding since 2010.
