Social care and support

Over the last 6 years I've experienced many cuts to my care package. This all started in 2010 when I lost the money to help me hire a gardener 4 months later my domestic package was cut, the following year my night care was cut. Then my meal prep , shopping  assistance most resently my morning care has been reduced form 1hr30mins to just 45mins.
 From what I've heard from disabled friends and community in my local area it's only those of working age or younger that have been targeted.
So I'm wondering how many of you have been effected with these harsh cuts and how it has effected your daily lives ?

Ive already done my little part on this by on behalf of scope by going on local news channels !

    Hi WheelyRachel,

    From a helpline perspective, we answer a lot of call and emails about the cuts to welfare benefits, social care and so on.

    It's great that you're speaking out about it and raising awareness of the issues.

    If we can help here at the helpline, do get in touch :)
