Another week and more news to share on SEN updates...
  • Social Care Crisis: Mencap’s ongoing #socialcarecrisis campaign has highlighted more shocking statistics when it comes to concerns over care package cuts for people and families caring for someone with learning difficulties:

72% of families are scared of more cuts to social care happening in the future
7 in 10 (69%) people with a learning disability had their social care cut or reduced
4 in 5 (79%) family carers have been forced to take on more unpaid care for their family member
