Decision to axe £1.4m funding for Birmingham voluntary groups ruled unlawful
A decision to axe a £1.4 million funding package for 13 voluntary organisations, including the Citizens Advice Bureau, was unlawful, a High Court Judge has ruled.
Mr Justice Blake said a Birmingham City Council decision to stop giving money to groups such as the Citizens Advice Bureau was “clearly defective” and that councillors appeared not to understand their obligations under the Race Relations Act, Sex Discrimination Act and Disability Discrimination Act.
Council leaders failed to take proper account of the impact that withdrawing grants would have on disabled and vulnerable people, the judge added.

It seems to me that it will be great if the government will help them. Unfortunately the financial situation in the country is really difficult. More and more people turn to reliable company provides payday loans. As the wages are low people have to take different loans and to pay their debts. It will be great if such great voluntary group will be funded in legal way.
