Carers’ anguish at funding cut that will cost them thousands

 

PARENTS of adults with severe learning difficulties are facing college bills of nearly £5,000 after funding was slashed by the government.

They are being forced to pay more than £1,600 for each of three years for the successful Pathways programme at Bournemouth and Poole College.

The course, for over-19s with disabilities or severe or moderate learning difficulties, has been free of charge until now.

But government funding which covered half the cost of the course has been removed.
