Meeting will discuss new proposals for social care

A MEETING is being held to highlight how the government’s new personalisation agenda could revolutionise the way social care is provided to people with learning disabilities.

A carers’ forum is being held on Thursday, March 31, at the Oxford Centre in West Farm Avenue, Longbenton, at 10am.

The event has been organised by the Learning Disabilities Federation.

A spokesperson said: “The social care system is under immense pressure at the moment.

“Huge current demand, massive future demand, huge funding pressures and significant cuts may be about to make themselves known.”
