Spelthorne Labour Party members at the 1st July march on London.
The event, organised by the People’s Assemlly and supported by all major trade unions, including PCS, calls for an end to the 1% public sector pay cap, and demands a decent health service, education system, housing, jobs and living standards for all.
Councillors Evade Carers’ Easements
Spelthorne Shamed on
In the absence of social residential care for dementia sufferers in the borough, a massive burden is landed upon carers.
Frequently family members have to end or reduce working hours, thus sustain income loss as well as distress. What a calculated, cynical performance. For it is incumbent upon councils to inform them that in retirement they are entitled to financial support in the form of partial council tax easement. The council flagrantly failed so to do.
Spelthorne was publicly shamed, by the BBC TV News as the most evasive of boroughs in failing to produce or publicise the funding available.
There scores of families in Spelthorne who have a dementia victim at home.
But just ten, reveals the BBC survey, receive their due.
