Sheltered Housing Petition - 2016

TWELVE sheltered housing complexes in South Lakeland are facing huge spending cutbacks as part of plans laid out by South Lakes Housing.

Austerity measures to be enforced by central government mean that vulnerable residents may no longer be able to access essential services.

Nick Cross, who represents Labour in Sedbergh and Kirkby Lonsdale, invites you to sign the below petition which will be presented to South Lakes Housing in early June.

Council funding should be sufficient to meet the cost of the provision of basic services such as sheltered housing.

Successive governments have embezzled the national insurance payments of many of those in sheltered housing and blurred the NI objectives.

Definitely need to keep this in the public eye.

These cuts are counterproductive. It is likely to result in more older people and others with support needs being driven into residential care instead of remaining within the community. Residential care is a more costly alternative for the local authority as well as offering a reduced quality of life for many. The other negative effect is likely to be increased avoidable hospital admissions. A retrograde step in every respect.

This is insupportable.

Sheltered social housing is a vital service for vulnerable elderly people. Cutbacks in this service provision will force greater spending burdens on to partner caring organisations such as GPs CCC adult social care, and NHS hospitals. It will also create greater burdens for primary family supporters. Better ‘joined up’ negotiations and action needed rather than service withdrawal.
