The Social Work Action Network (SWAN) condemn the announcement last week of plans by Worcestershire County Council to put new limits on adult social care spending, which would see the rights of disabled people to independent living downplayed in the name of meeting ‘the financial challenge’. If plans are approved, from September all new service users and existing service users (if their needs change) will face a tight limit on funding, meaning that they may have to receive care in residential or nursing care - a new retrogressive precedent. 


This week the Delivering Dignity report by the Commission on Dignity in Care for Older People was published. You can read a copy of the report for yourself here
