Community Support Service SG6
The cuts in funding to the Community Support Service following the removal of its ringfencing to its budget has led to cuts nationwide, but in Hertfordshire they have opted for the immediate slashing of 50% of the budget and redundancy notices have already been handed out to staff.
I have lodged a legal challenge to this cut (See my personal testimony for details).
At the same time as reducing the service, service users will now be expected to pay anything up to an extra £55 per week for services especially if they are on benefits but perversely those with higher resources available may well now get the service free of charge?

Does this cut affect you or someone you know?
