Fight for St Pauls’ Learning Centre

Bristol Council plans to remove all funding from St Pauls Learning Centre as part of £90 million of cuts proposed by mayor George Ferguson.

The library is being looked at separately, but the rest of the facilities would close.

The council says the centre doesn’t get enough use. But it hasn’t asked the opinions of the people who will be affected – the community of St Pauls.

Full Circle believe the council’s assessment is wrong. It doesn’t truly reflect the use of the centre or take into account the negative impact its closure would have on our neighbourhood.

A door-to-door survey was carried out last October by St Pauls Unlimited and 300 local people were spoken to – 78% of them use and value the learning centre as an important facility for St Pauls.

We will be campaigning over the coming weeks and months to keep our learning centre open – and we need your support.
