Following on from yesterday's news that increases in council tax are unlikely to reduce cuts in care this is the sad story of Luke who is severely disabled and has had his care package cut dramatically. 

Unfortunately this is not uncommon and we are increasingly finding that clients are offered one off sign posting or bits of kit rather than proper hands on care. 

However, I would not want to disparage social workers who are often balancing huge caseloads in the knowledge that the resources they are able to provide are extremely stretched.
