HANDS OFF OUR HOMES – Demonstration

UNISON and Unite call for a joint demonstration on Wednesday 21st November at 1:30pm in front of the Civic Centre, before a debate in Full Council.

The Hands off our Homes campaign has successfully hit its first target of 1,500 signatures on the petition. This means unions can present to Full Council, and trigger a debate about the future of Holcroft House and Glen Lee. But that’s not all we plan to do.

We are calling on all affected employees, union members, friends and family of residents and members of the community to join us in demonstrating the council’s continued proposal to close these vital services.

We will provide flags, banners, whistles and all the right stuff to make us seen and heard. The council are starting to getting the Hands off our Homes message but we need to keep the pressure up.

After the demonstration, all are invited to attend the public Full Council meeting where Claire Ransom, our Deputy-Branch Secretary, will address councillors about the danger these proposals pose to residents, employees, and the future of care in Southampton. After this there will be a debate between councillors.

Four ways you can help

  1. Attend the demonstration.


  1. Share the flyer on social media
  1. Write to your ward councillor
  1. Keep signing the petition and completing the online consultation



Hands off our Homes is a joint campaign between UNISON and Unite the union.
