Local public services consult on family services

Which public services are most important to your family?

Local people are being urged to have their say on which public services are most important to themselves and their families, as Lancaster City Council and other publicly-funded bodies face further government funding reductions in coming years.

For the second year running, the City Council has joined forces with Lancashire County Council, NHS Lancashire North Clinical Commissioning Group, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, Lancashire Fire and Rescue, Lancashire Constabulary and Lancaster and Morecambe College to gather and hear your views.

This year the theme is 'families'.

"Families are at the heart of our society and it is important that the right services needed to support them are available," said a spokesperson.

With less than two weeks to go before this major consultation ends (Monday 15th October), they want to hear from all families as soon as possible, be they those caring for an elderly relative, or other dependant, or those with children.  Everyone taking part will be entered into a prize draw for £100 Booths voucher.

Questionnaires can be completed online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/haveyoursay (current consultations) before Monday 15th October.

You can also contact the council for a paper copy by email to haveyoursay@lancaster.gov.uk or by calling 01524 582000.
