Keep us updated on how the cuts are affecting you

‘Living In the Margins’ will continue to campaign and lobby but we need you to be the eyes and ears of what is happening in your area. We need you to tell us about the positive things happening locally as well as your stories about the effects that the cuts or changes to local services are having on you and your local community. Send us your stories, or links to your videos and pictures to [email protected]
