COST-CUTTING proposals could leave more than 750 vulnerable people without cash for their care.
Lincolnshire County Council is planning to make people with "moderate needs" ineligible for care funding in a bid to save £4.6 million a year.
Officials say 3,096 people are classed as moderate, which is where they cannot care for themselves properly without help or specialist equipment.
Of these 1,509 will have to be reassessed, with predictions suggesting half of these people will lose their cash.
The other half are expected to be upgraded from moderate to substantial – the second highest level behind critical.
