How can we help you?

Support the #StopSleepInCrisis campaign

Government changes to 'sleep-in' payments are threatening to take away vital support from thousands of disabled people. 

The care sector has been landed with a massive £400 million bill and many providers now face bankruptcy. This could mean the end of social care as we know it. 

Please sign our petition to #StopSleepInCrisis by urging the Government to fix this problem, which they have created.

The future care of the most vulnerable people in our society must be protected.
