Social Care Matters - click here

Social care is a vital public service providing care and support to disabled people to live the lives they want to lead.
At the moment many thousands of disabled people who need social care support do not receive it.
Those who can afford to must pay for their own and those who can’t afford to must make do without.
We want to make sure that no one misses out on the social care they need because they cannot afford to pay for it.
