Northamptonshire County Council currently has a number of consultations out for responses by the residents within the county. It is of utmost importance that as many carers and customers as possible respond to these consultations due the detrimental effect they may have on the lives of carers and those they care for.
Northamptonshire County Council has stated in their 'Equality Impact Assessment' that any changes to fees relating to adult social service users will disproportionately affect people with disability and health conditions, which require them to seek support from Northamptonshire Adult Social Services.
The statement above shows that Northamptonshire County Council is already aware of the disproportionate impact this will have on carers and customers, so please respond to these consultations and let your voice be heard.
