Stop the government's inhumanity by forcing severely disabled people out of their homes

My son Kevin is severely disabled and requires 24 hour care, since his disability 16 years ago he has been supported by care providers which has allowed him to live independently in his own home and lead a decent quality of life. As a result of the governments austerity cuts Kevin's funding was reduced by 50% even although he requires the same level of support which means that he has insufficient funding to continue living independently in his home and be supported on a one to one basis. Ultimately, resulting in him being forced out of his home and into shared accommodation with another disabled person who is a complete stranger/s and potentially into an unfamiliar location losing the one to one support he has been accustomed to over the last 14 years. I can't explain how detrimental this will impact on his well-being and particularly his mental health because he will no longer have the opportunity to live independently on a daily basis and lead the active social life he currently has without one to one support and live nearby his close knit family and friends. I am pleading on Theresa May as the Prime Minister of our country and Nicola Sturgeon Scotland's First minister to review Kevin's circumstances as well as other disabled people in the same situation to ensure vulnerable disabled people are not being forced out of their homes and treated inhumanly by the implementation of new government policies and be allowed transitional protection to give them the freedom to live independently and have the best life they can possibly lead.
