British Red Cross-Concern over cuts

The British Red Cross has warned that more than three quarters of councillors whose local authority has made cuts to preventative and low-level social care admit they are worried about the impact on the elderly and vulnerable. The charity said the move was a false economy.

Meanwhile, Hilary Mantel, the Booker prize-winning novelist, has argued that vulnerable care home residents are treated like “brutes or malfunctioning machines”. She spoke out after attempting to find accommodation for a disabled friend.
