Enfield L.A.'s policy to charge Severely Disabled adults for services they aren't even receiving!
UPDATE: 15/11/17 We Won!
We are delighted to inform you all that the proposal by Enfield L.A. to significantly, and unfairly, increase charges to many severely disabled adults has been abandoned!
The following statement from the Enfield Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care was published in the Enfield Council Cabinet Agenda for their 15/11/2017 meeting:
"I want to thank all of the local people and representatives who have engaged with and responded to the recent consultation on potential changes to the Council’s Charging Policy for Adult Social Care Services.
Having listened to and considered the strength and breadth of views expressed I will not be bringing forward any recommendations for decision at this meeting."
Thank you so much for signing and sharing our petition - we garnered 773 signatures and this was a significant reason why the decision was halted at the last minute. Your help has been instrumental in protecting the most vulnerable people in society but we are under no illusions that there may well be difficult challenges ahead.
We are humbled at the power of can be achieved when people with empathy can stick together.
Thank you for being involved.
