FUNDING for adults with disabilities could be cut.

Around 10,000 Kirklees families or affected organisations have been sent questionnaires asking them what the impact would be if funding was to stop for services such as day care.

The coalition ( ha ha ) will set in place powers for the local people to overule the council , so says ERIC PICKLES he will introdce legislation whereby the people can vote for what services they want to retain or cut .. main problem is most of the cuts will take place over the next 2 years and his peoples bill will never ever see the light of day ... all we can do is vote out the council if they cut what we want them to keep ,,,
ES seem to be following the same path expensivley printed consultation poll, a legitimate way to gain input but what will be done with it one wonders the proposal we are being asked about is to provide support only to those with critical needs. Luckily or otherwise OH is definatley within the critical criteria but its very difficult to see how many we know who would fall into the next level down "substantial" will be able to cope and many will become critical over the next year because of the withdrawal of support.

Would much rather be asked which alternative services ie not adult social care should be cut.

Our candidates would be
1. Overbearing Police numbers established by the last goverment to control everything we do.
2. Care to those who qualify due to elective desease eg Alchoholism / Drug Addiction
3. Care Agencies ( charging for two carers, when one driect payments carer is sufficient, for H&S reasons), never mind the obvious profit they make by paying minimum wages.
4. Self agrandisment plans let boris build boris Island (Airport) but from his own or private pockets!
5. Council social engineering projects which can not be explained in terms that a man from mars could understand.

Suspect this may cause some reaction.
