RNIB volunteer campaigners Steve Hyde and Josie Iles met with Bath and North East Somerset Council to press for improvements to rehabilitation services on 5 August.
We believe the most pressing issue is the chronic under funding of social care and we hope the Government will address this in the comprehensive spending review this autumn.
Local campaigners, our Regional Campaigns Officer for Yorkshire and Humber, and Hull and East Riding Institute for the Blind have successfully campaigned for better rehabilitation support in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
On 24 October the Government published the Care Act regulations and guidance which set out how local authorities should provide care and support in England. There is a lot to be welcomed. Thanks so much to everyone who has got involved with our social campaign! Without this amazing amount of activity we would not have had such a huge impact on social care.
MP for Manchester Central, Lucy Powell, visited her local rehabilitation service on 24 April in support of our Cut out of care campaign.
