Solving the crisis in Social Care


Social Care is just as important as Health Care, but does not receive the support is should do.

With this in mind please could I mention that the forthcoming Budget is an important opportunity to address the crucial issue of funding for Social Care, but will it.

Boris has promised, but will he keep his promise and even if money is made available will it be sufficient.

Boris has now mentioned it will take 5 years to get the funding, Social Care can not wait that long.

Boris needs to be told this is not good enough, so it is essential we keep the pressure on Boris and my petition ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care could be the means.

Please see below

We now have the New Year 2020.

However, if the ‘Crisis in Social Care’ is not Solved soon there will not be many more New Years for the care, required for persons in need of care, to be provided by Local Authorities due to their lack of funding. This will then have a much greater impact on health care provision, which is itself in crisis.

I have therefore created my latest petition, please follow the link

This Petition needs You, please sign to show your support for you will not know when you or someone in your family will need social care.

Did Jeremy Corbyn stay loyal to his mentor Tony Benn, and help make Brexit happen? – Nye Bevan News


Is Jeremy Corbyn as much a hero of Brexit as Nigel Farage, or Boris Johnson, or Tony Benn? Should Brexiteers, left wing or right wing, toast Jeremy Corbyn? No, I’m serious. I know to many he is a bumbling fool, or worse, a threat to the nation. To many his politics are anathema, as are […]

Trump administration proposes rule to punish disabled people : Daily Kos


In its ongoing efforts to make life just that much more difficult and humiliating for vulnerable people, the Trump administration is floating a new rule that would add in layers of bureaucracy for some people receiving Social Security Disability Insurance. The administrative costs for that added level of review would basically zero out any savings to the program, proving once again that cruelty is the point for Donald Trump and team.
