Wirral Budget Consultation

Have Your Say

Updated 22nd Jan 2021

Every year, Wirral Council agrees its budget to work out how they will spend the money that they have on services across the Borough.

One part of their budget is how much money will be spent on Adult Day Services, which includes Wirral Evolutions.

Before the Council make any decisions, they want to hear from people as part of their consultation process. We encourage people we support and their families to have their say and give their feedback as any decisions made will have a direct impact on our services.

People with a learning disability need our help more than ever. It is vital that funding to day services is not reduced as Wirral Council consider their budget proposals.

The easiest and quickest way to respond is by Downloading and completing the Easy Read version of the consultation and returning it to BudgetConsult@wirral.gov.uk

You can also respond to the survey via the Council's website
