Cllr Anne Hannigan and the Renfrewshire Liberal Democrats were "delighted" to hear that plans to merge a pair of day services for adults with learning disabilities were rejected at the latest meeting of the integration joint board (IJB).

The councillor for Paisley Southwest has been fully supporting the Mirin and Milldale services campaign that had been fighting for this outcome to save the day centres that predessesor ex-councillor, Eileen McCartin, played a key part in getting them introduced.

Cllr Hannigan said: “I was absolutely delighted to hear of the decisions taken by the IJB.

"The centres truly are a lifeline to the users of the services and their families, and the relief felt by them all after such a protracted period of fear and uncertainty will be immense.

"This was always a very poorly thought out policy by people who just didn't understand what these centres provide for their users.

"I have also spoken to ex-councillor Eileen McCartin, who helped introduce these centres some 15 years ago, and she is very pleased that common sense has prevailed, and that at least one other member has voted with the four Renfrewshire councillors to support the users of both centres for the future."
