Glasgow day centres threatened with closure

THREE council day centres in Glasgow could close under plans to revamp services for people with learning disabilities.

Matt Kerr, the council’s social work spokesman, said he appreciated these proposals will represent a big change

It would mean the closure of centres at Berryknowes, Summerston, and Hinshaw Street at Queen’s Cross, which accommodate about 130 people each weekday.

Social work bosses will launch a consultation on the plan, which will be considered by the council’s executive committee in January.
