Today 3 unpaid Carers are attending the Hertfordshire Adult Care Panel. The Panel are deciding on whether to increase care charges by £6m and reduce care spending by £11m for 2018/19. There are further £30m in cuts to cone before 2021. We are going there to see how the Councillors are going justify this.
We had hoped that the Govt were listening when they said they were going to put caring on a sustainable footing. Mrs May then appoints Esther McVey as Secretary of State for DWP. Given her previous track record at the DWP it does not bode well for unpaid Carers and their loved ones
