Wednesday 25 November 2015
Learning disability charity Mencap has responded to the Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR) and Autumn Statement. Mencap warn that the Chancellor has not done enough to prevent the social care sector moving closer to collapse.
On social care Jan Tregelles, CEO of Mencap, said:
"The care system is critically under-funded. Many people with a learning disability are not getting the vital care and support they need, so are stuck at home with nothing to do, isolated and scared about the future.
