Community Care Magazine: The Postcode Lottery of Care

Following on from my last post with a link to my article in Community Care Magazine, here's one I prepared earlier!

This piece ran 13 years ago when Chrissy was 16, & it's about inconsistency of service levels offered by local authorities.

We had just moved to Buckinghamshire, & the support hours that Chrissy had received in Hertfordshire, where we'd lived previously, were cut in half. Chrissy's needs hadn't changed but the council claimed they 'didn't have a big enough purse.'
