Whitstable Job Centre under threat

Canterbury Greens will be supporting the PCS protest on Friday at the threatened closure of Whitstable Job Centre.

Pat Marsh, Canterbury Green Party: "Whitstable Job Centre is there to provide a key service to people in need. It has already seen its hours reduced and closure will simply make it harder to access and more likely that people miss essential appointments.

"This appears to be the latest in a long line of attacks by the government on the poor and vulnerable in our society."

Stuart Jeffery, Chair of Kent Green Party: "I have written to the PCS expressing our support for their campaign and to the Job Centre management calling for the Whitstable centre to remain open. We have to ensure that essential services are available and accessible to all who need them."

Letter to District Manager:

Dear Mr Ashdown,

I am emailing you to urge you to keep the Job Centre at Whistable open. I am aware that you will be far more aware than me at the difficulties that people who are out of work face from having to travel, difficulties that are increased significantly if people are disabled.

For the sake of the local people please do not close your centre in Whitstable.

Kind regards

Stuart Jeffery
Chair of Kent Green Party
