On 9th February 2015 Barry joined members of the New Millennium Day Centre to discuss their concerns about proposals to close the centre down in light of central government cuts imposed on Brent Council.
Barry met with a number of representatives, including Ms Sandra Duke, of the day centre alongside senior figures from Brent Council to hear the concerns of the centre’s members and to urge Brent Council to extend the consultation period so that alternative options might be considered that would allow the centre to continue as a valuable service for its members.
Following the meeting, Barry said:
“I hope the council heard what they said and will take it on board. We are talking about people who are the most vulnerable in our community. If we are in politics we are there especially to fight for the vulnerable and those who can’t fight for themselves.”
