Every week we are hearing stories of the horrendous impact of the Social Care Charges on the live of disabled people. This includes:
- charges increasing during Covid-19
- Disability Related Expenses (DRE) previously paid, being refused
- financial assessments being carried out without any contact with the person
- arrears being charged when people didn’t know they had increased Care Charges to pay etc, etc, etc!
It’s time for action! We are linking with people and campaigning organisations across the country to agree a plan of action. We are stronger together. Watch this space!
This report, shared by Julie Stansfield from In Control, is really worth a read – it is from 2019 – the impact on people’s lives was awful then…it is even worse now!
