MP and councillor want to hear your views on Howgill


Copeland MP Trudy Harrison and county councillor Emma Williamson are calling on the community to share their experiences about Howgill.

There has been overwhelming community support for the well-respected Copeland centre following a Cumbria County Council decision to bring in a London-based charity to take over the delivery of local family and children’s services.

And now the community is being asked to contact Mrs Harrison and Coun Williamson to share their experiences of Howgill - which has served Copeland for over 40 years.

Mrs Harrison said: “We want to hear from more families about Howgill so that we can build up a picture of the diverse services it offers and the needs it meets for our local people. Howgill offers a frontline service which is trusted and respected, so quite rightly there has been a huge backlash from the community about this decision.

“It doesn’t make sense to lose something that is trusted, tried and tested.”

Coun Williamson, who represents Kells ward and will be ‘calling in’ the decision by the county council, said: “We want to help fight for Howgill and as part of this we want to know how this decision will affect our community and the impact it will have on families.

“Howgill is at the very heart of Copeland which has high levels of poverty. This service works with hundreds of families and children offering a wide range of help, support and advice and will be a huge loss.”
