Lobby of Parliament
From 2:30pm we will lobby Government MPs to press home our message that these deep rapid cuts will hit the vulnerable and threaten economic recovery.
It's always best to make arrangements to meet MPs in advance as they may not be in Parliament that day or busy in meetings. Involving service users as well as public service workers will make our voice more powerful.
