Views sought on support

editorial image

At Leonard Cheshire Disability, we believe everyone should be able to live their lives independently and with dignity while getting the support they need.

This includes every-day tasks such as washing, dressing and eating.

These are not luxuries, but essentials.

Sadly, some disabled and older people are still experiencing flying 15-minute care visits which can leave them facing impossible choices.

Like having a cup of tea or using the loo.

Others have seen cuts to their social care because of council budget pressures.

We are campaigning for better and fairer social care and would like to hear from readers about their experiences.

Whether you have received care yourself or experienced it through a friend or family member, please get in touch.

Together we can make a difference.
