Charging ahead without care

2009 has got off to a grim start in H&F for older and disabled people as the Tory council introduces charges for home help services.

Already it seems many people needing home care are choosing to cancel or reduce their services rather than face paying the new charges.

Regular hfconwatch readers will recall that the Tories' 2006 election manifesto promised not to introduce charging for home care in H&F.
