No cuts to West Lothian Leisure Services.



Unite the Union in West Lothian Council  members supporting Unison West Lothian  campaign to stop cuts to leisure services

Why is this important?

Staff within West Lothian Leisure play a vital role in our local communities. They help people of various ages and circumstances and provide them with routes to mental and physical wellbeing. Trust staff help people engage and be involved, whether that is having a health check, going for a swim, taking a walk, joining a gym, providing outdoor leisure services or culture and arts.

It is crucial to recognise the role that public leisure and culture plays in improving the health and wellbeing of people in their local communities, delivering a wide range of vital community services.
