Fair Care for Leicestershire

We the undersigned petition the Council to stop charging elderly, vulnerable and disabled people for social care.

The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) stopped the Independent Living Fund in 2015 and local authorities became responsible for funding social care. Leicestershire County Council introduced charges for social care services to the elderly and disabled people and has increased them every year since 2015, making the most vulnerable bear the brunt of the governments ';austerity' cuts.
