One thought on “UK’s lack of social care is hitting disabled people in Covid-19 lockdown | Vox Political”
Some serious considerations.
When COVID-19 broke in the UK this Conservative Governments first thoughts was for Local Authorities and their possible inability to be able to provide their ‘Duty of Care’ created by the Care Act 2014 and therefore they included in the Coronavirus Act 2020 means for Local Authorities to relinquish their responsibilities within the Care Act 2014.
This created a means for a social care system already in crisis to be made deeper in crisis for those persons in need of care and their families at a time when, it was more likely that an increase of care could be required.
This completely shows that this Government has no ‘Duty of Care’ for persons in need of Social Care and follows their decimation of the welfare system over the last 11 years.
Every action this and previous Conservatives have taken has been to make the lives worse for persons with disabilities and in need of social care.
This Government does not care.
This means it is more imperative that the crisis in Social Care needs to be solved and is one of the reasons I created the Petition ‘Solve the crisis in Social Care’
and for further information
Social Care needs to be saved for without it the lives of persons in need of care will be decimated even more.
