Down’s Syndrome girl sobs over closure threat –

 

A YOUNG woman with Down’s Syndrome sobbed at a packed public meeting as her mum pleaded with county council bosses to keep The Chappell Centre open.

Other parents vowed to take the fight to Parliament and County Hall in Lincoln by petitioning for a full council debate.

The Chappell Centre in Spalding’s Pinchbeck Road is one of 30 adult social care day centres facing the axe along with two respite centres, Cedar House – also in Pinchbeck Road – and Swallow Lodge at North Hykeham.

Around 90 people crammed into a room at The Chappell Centre to hear the council is switching service users to personal budgets and cannot afford to “double fund” by paying to run the centres as well.
