Social care allows me to overcome barriers to assist me to achieve independence without parents having to look after me as they did when I was a child.

The emergency care provided by the local council has been cut due to funding cuts. I can’t access care when I need it the most.

Once, I was left for two weeks without sufficient care, and my health suffered as a result.

Until these cuts occurred, I was happy with the care I was getting, which was helping me to remain independent.

With good quality emergency care, I could live the life I’d like, without having to worry about being stuck without help.
