This is just 1 story. This will affect all of us whether it be ourselves or a loved one. Please sign this petition and spread the word as they are not informing us correctly. Something needs to be done to protect our most vulnerable people in our community.

My son is 19+ and did not get a letter!
My brother did! Fri 9th March with the deadline for today Mon 12th March!

No easy read version supplied nor offered either ( he can't read or write )

I have emailed adult social care=

My brother, the service user whom l am advocating for, received a letter regarding the above asking for :

"views from service users, carers and service providers on a number of policies which sets out how we calculate charges for services and how we decide how much we will pay towards services"...

On FRIDAY 9th March with a deadline of TODAY Monday 12th March!!!

Thats 3 days notice of deadline to consult over a weekend!!!!

NOT LONG ENOUGH AT ALL!

NO EASY READ OPTION OFFERED!
He, like many service users cannot read or write!

No time to request, receive nor respond an Easy Read format and certainly non enclosed!

NO LEAFLET ENCLOSED AS SPECIFIED IN THE LETTER!

NO SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS OUTLYING THE PROPOSED CHANGES AND IT'S DIRECT EFFECT ON SERVICE USERS AND THEIR FAMILIES! INCLUDING BULLET POINTS.

NO LIST OF ALTERNATIVE SOLUTIONS OFFERED.

Also, my 19 year old WILL become a service user. Why hasn't his views been sought? After all, these proposed changes ( whatever they are! ) will directly impact on him too in the near future!

WHERE ARE THE CONSULTATION MEETINGS?

We need MORE TIME in order to PROPERLY CONSULT AND TIME TO CONSIDER AND FEEDBACK WITH ALL RELEVANT INFORMATION, IN ADVANCE AND WITH ACCESS TO EASY READ OPTIONS!

PLEASE extend the deadline and significantly enough to actually consult with, hold meetings and supply ALL RELEVANT INFORMATION to be able to feed back in a MORE INFORMED manor.

Thank you.
