ACCESS TO SERVICES FOR SEVERELY DISABLED PEOPLE
26.05.2010

George, Andrew
That this House commends the work of Michael and Henrietta Spink and the Henry Spink Foundation in highlighting the need to improve services, and access to services, for severely disabled children, adults and their carers; has sympathy for Henrietta and Michael Spink's personal plight as parents of two severely disabled children; regards them and the millions of other carers in the UK as quietly heroic; further supports Henrietta and Michael Spink's call for the creation of a Code of Practice for the assessment and management of support packages for children's and adult's social care; calls for the creation of an independent Social Services Tribunal, and for the reform of local authority regulations so that care assessments and support packages for children and adults become easily portable from one authority to another; and calls on Her Majesty's Government to bring forward as soon as possible the necessary changes in the law and regulations to enact these sensible, pragmatic, cost-efficient reforms which would significantly improve the lives of thousands of severely disabled children and adults and their carers.
