Care and Repair Service for vulnerable people
Clackmannanshire Council has decided to withdraw funding for the the local Care and Repair Service which has been operational in this area for 12 years. This service provides support and assistance to the old, weak, frail and vulnerable so they can remain independently in their own homes. It helps the elderly with small repairs, minor adaptations and odd jobs when in some cases, if these were not done, the elderly person would have to be in residential care, which would cost the Council substantially more. This is at a time when the Scottish Government has recently said that services for the old and vulnerable would be protected.
