Care home cuts concern

Have your say

A DEBATE will take place today about the impact reductions in social care budgets will have on vulnerable people living in private residential homes.

Barnsley Council’s personal and family wellbeing scrutiny commission is hosting the discussion, at 2pm, in the lecture theatre of Barnsley Central Library, Shambles Street.

At the public meeting, councillors want to ‘look at what the impact of the big reductions in public spending will have’ particularly on the standards of care due to owners having to cut costs.
