Disability and social care, Milton Keynes 

Location: UK » East of England » MK

Milton Keynes has increased disability-related laundry costs from £5 to £9.41 per load and has increased the cost of telecare people use in their homes to help them live more independently, from £1.76 to £3.53 per week. The council takes into account 50 per cent of a disabled person’s benefits when assessing how much they will contribute towards a disabled person’s care. They will soon be increasing this to 70 per cent, which will mean disabled people will have to contribute more money forwards their care.
