Social care campaign
Social care and rehabilitation services are essential for anyone with sight loss, but they're under threat.
Campaigners have been busy getting the message out there that things must change now otherwise in 10 years' time not a single blind or partially sighted person will receive any support from their council to remain independent.
Over 200 people tell the Government how important care is!
Thank you so much to everyone who joined us in responding to the government's consultation on how the new Care Act will be implemented in England. Over 230 people took the time to fill out our online action to respond to the consultation, and many more did it through other means.
We put our own response in to the Government, collating the thoughts and opinions of many campaigners and members who have helped us craft our arguments. Let's now hope they listen!
We'll be talking to Government over the next few weeks and months to conutinue to feed in the opinions of blind and a[prtially sighted people as they finalise their plans. Watch this space for how to get involved again at the next opportunity we have...
