SWAN activists in Liverpool are launching a joint campaign with Liverpool Against The Cuts against the recent cuts to adult social care services across the city. Liverpool City Council are in the process of implementing a total overhaul of adult social care which they describe as a ‘transformation and modernisation’ of services for adults with mental ill health, learning disabilities, those with complex needs and older people.
Part of this ‘transformation’ includes closing 15 specialist day care centres, ‘externalising’ services and removal of service provision for some service users under the councils changes to Fair Access to Care Services (FACS) eligibility.
We are holding a public meeting on the 10th May in Liverpool City Centre and encourage as many people as possible to come along. Please download the attached information flyers below for further details and feel free to distribute the information across your networks!
