The shape of things to come

October 1st 2010

London day centre Providence Row has told The Pavement of cuts being to its funding that mirror funding reductions many charities will experience with the coalition government's proposed cuts in public spending.

Providence Row, in London's East End, marked its 150th anniversary this year, but even in this year of celebration has been told by its local authority, Tower Hamlets, that funding to its project will be cut by £100,000 annually from 1 January 2011.

Lisa Harrison, deputy chief executive of the charity, said: "this constitutes just over 10 per cent of our annual income, and so we will need to be making some cuts. We aim to minimize the effect on our clients' services, but there may be some effect what is available in the future."

Harrison added: "although Tower Hamlets is making the cut, it is as a result of cuts from central government." Providence Row will weather this storm, but many younger, smaller organisations may more affected by public sector cuts.
