After adults with learning disabilities, from the Furness area, leave college (21-23 years old) there are few options for them other than residential care. And as others with family members in this situation would agree, I don’t have enough trust in services to allow my family members to go into residential care. There are a few options, but funding is scarce and places are few and far between. I suggest improving current disability services to allow more adults to attend day services or open a new day services centre to allow more adults with disabilities to access full-time care. The whole of Furness has suffered from lack of services, it’s about time money was spent on our area.
