A news story on the 22/01/2016


'A DISABLED woman was failed by the local authority and was left without proper care and support according to a recent report from the Local Government Ombudsman, who have recommended a significant £7k pay-out.

The woman from Central Bedfordshire complained that the council did not administer her direct payments properly; including giving her a clear idea of what could be included in her disability-related expenditure.'
