One thought on “Care charging campaign responses

  1. On behalf of Kingston United Reformed Church, I am writing to add my voice to the many others who have expressed their deep concern at the increased charges propososed by Kingston Council for domiciliary care.

    Such increases target the borough’s most needy people, endanger their independence, run counter to the council’s excellent record in facilitating care at home for the elderly and disabled and could well result in a budgetary own goal for RBK as the new charges fuel subsequent ‘Hobson’s Choice’ demand for council-funded residential accommodation.

    I do hope that the council will reconsider these retrograde proposals.
