    Social service possible cutting support hours? 16th Apr 18 at 7:26 PM
    We had somebody from county hall come out to our supported living complex and assess us all individually, they are looking to cut hours. I get 21 hours support a week and my manager said that keeps me well and has prevented me from being sectioned in 18 months when before then it was twice a year for 8 years. The assesser said I can look into the NHS funding some/all my care package. I think this will be a better option for me because I donít have to worry about future cuts from social services. I have a CPA in a few weeks and will bring it up then. Do you have a NHS budget and how does it work.
