Disabled group to take disability test to determine eligibilty

 

MEMBERS of a Langport support group for disabled adults are being made to undergo tests to see if their disability is serious enough for them to continue attending.

But Somerset County Council, whose Cabinet committee approved the examinations, has pledged to support the group’s users no matter what.

Members of the Ridgeway Hall Disabled Group, which meets twice weekly and offers a range of social activities, are being reassessed after the Cabinet agreed to raise the level of care a person must reach to have their care paid for by the council from ‘moderate’ to ‘substantial’.

    i birmingham our city council raised its criteria from substantional to critical and was only going to fund critical for services like personal care etc but a judgement against them stopped them doing this
    so now there having to think again where they can make savings

    This is happening everywhere and again it is a cynical ploy to cheat people out of services………….
