Disabled Woman Tells Victoria Derbyshire Show She Is Scared Because Of Social Care Crisis
A woman with disabilities has told us how she is scared about the future because of cuts to care services. The charity Scope says the social care system is “crumbling under financial pressure” – leaving tens of thousands of people to face getting less help with basic tasks such as washing, dressing and eating.
Scope wants the Chancellor to promise to spend more on social services in his Autumn Statement.
The Department of Health says it has “invested an extra £3.2 billion to social care between 2011-2014”.
