Please bear with me whilst I veer off my usual outdoor course.

During November my work colleagues and I have been out and about in Nottinghamshire County helping service users lobby their local councillors. Nottinghamshire County council have decided to buck the national trend and are proposing to cut the supporting people budget by up to 67%, this is on top of the 20% cuts already set for the next four years.  This will affect the most vulnerable people in the county.  As part of this lobbying we have been taking photographs of people who access various services holding up a message they would like to convey to those who make the decisions.  This hopefully puts a human face to those who will be affected.  Here are a few of the photos that we have taken, the full set can be viewed here.
