Support service cuts having devastating impact on people with learning disabilities, charity warns


Carers for severely disabled vulnerable people saw their already overstretched support services all but disappear because of the pandemic.

This is the reality for the vast majority of carers in the UK, according to one leading charity.

Mencap warns that cuts to day services, personal care in the home and respite for carers have had a devastating impact on people with a learning disability and their families.
