“Council are cutting our funding by two thirds”

THE mother of a severely disabled Bournemouth man has hit out over potentially devastating cuts to her son’s care funding.

Tarik Zavadil, 26, suffers from cerebral palsy and has to have round-the-clock care from three carers, led by his mother Lorraine.

Tarik, who lives in a bungalow in Bournemouth, has received direct payments for the past seven years from Bournemouth council, enabling a dedicated team to provide essential 24hour care at home.

But just before Christmas, Mrs Zavadil was told by social services that her son’s funding could be cut by two thirds.

    The pressure will be on Councils even more when millions are thrown off of ESA IB and DLA as well as losing Income Support and Carers Allowance millions will be looking to the councils and charities to provide what the Tory Government describe as “Big Society”.

    Happy New Year!
