Hi Stuart.

Regretably , what you have just experienced is being repeated nationwide ... the LAs have not the funding from Central Government.

Consequently , care packages are being cut / prices increased despite the provisions of the Care Act , 2014.

I would recommend upto date Needs and Carer Assessments from your LA to confirm exactly what's now on offer.
