Our Children’s Services have been in special measures for years and we have had several appalling Ofsteds. Care for Senior Citizens relies on increasingly shaky private provision, although our population of over-80s is very high. Funding for both local authority and community organisations has been decimated in the decade of austerity. Services for the vulnerable old and young need to be funded properly to take pressure off hospitals, schools and the police. We took this for granted once. All gone now, no help.
