Increase to charges for Social Care
Petition has closed and a council responder is preparing a response.

reject the proposals to increase charges for social care for severely disabled people who are being supported to live in their own homes, either alone or with family, as we believe that such increases will impact negatively upon:

  • the quality of their lives and consequently on their health and well-being,

  • the health and well-being of their family carers leading to potential carer breakdown,

  • the sustainability of their home  placement resulting in higher costs across the health and social care system.

We note the additional monies provided by Government and raised through the social care precept but we recognise the ongoing pressure on social care budgets and welcome the announcement that a Green Paper will be published this summer 2018.  However, we consider that these proposals if enacted would cause hardship and stress to the most severely disabled people in our community and their families.  We therefore call upon the County Council to reject them.
