We provide care to people living in Fareham and Gosport
Almost a million people a year in the UK use homecare services like ours in order to maintain their independence in their own homes – yet central and local government continue to put an unbearable squeeze on funding for these vital services.
We are supporting the Save Our Homecare e-petition, which is calling on Government for more funding to support people at home and reward careworkers.
Homecare is already chronically under-funded by Government. Unless something is done now, there will be an estimated £750m shortfall in 2016. As a result, some homecare providers may no longer be able to provide state-funded care and others may leave the market altogether.
The Save Our Homecare campaign is being backed by United Kingdom Homecare Association (UKHCA) – the UK’s professional association of homecare providers, of which we are a member.
Our team see every day the positive difference homecare makes to those who, due to age or disability, need help to maintain their independence. We want to send a powerful message to Government ahead of its autumn spending review.
Every signature counts, so if you feel strongly about this issue too, please sign the petition. You can also get involved and follow the #SaveOurHomecare campaign on Facebook and Twitter.
