PETITION TO CONTINUE TO KEEP 'THE DROGHEDA RESOURCE CENTRE' OPEN sign now

The Government plans to reduce the funding of Community Employment Schemes by two thirds, as outlined in Budget 2011. This will threaten the closure of the Drogheda Resource Centre as well as other local Community Services.
The Drogheda Resource Centre is an invaluable asset to the local community, providing a range of services from Information on Social Welfare, Crèche Facilities, Typing Services, Drogheda Training Initiative (A programme to target young unemployed men between 18-25 years, to enhance their work skills) and a Coffee Shop. Groups that benefit from the Drogheda Resource Centre Community Employment Scheme are 'Drogheda Senior Citizens', 'Drogheda Support 4 Older People' and the 'Irish Wheelchair Association'. Other Community Employment Schemes in the area are involved with the Elderly, Disabled, Women's Welfare, Youth, Homeless, Sports, Environmental Projects, Arts, Parish Facilities, Tourism, Health & Welfare Services as well as Heritage & History.
If these cuts are implemented, it will mean that thousands of people nationwide will be forced to return to the Live Register as well as depriving thousands of people of on site work experience and Accredited Training.
We cannot take this lying down. We need to fight to keep these services and in particular the Drogheda Resource Centre open and this petition is one step of many in achieving this goal. Thank you for taking the time to help us in our efforts.
