Cuts made to social care have made Norfolk people’s lives more difficult. Decisions have been imposed without proper participation by those directly affected. The relationship between people who use social care services and the council is at an all-time low. Trust has eroded and people have not been respected. Norfolk Tories have lined their own pockets with eye-watering allowance rises at the same time as cutting your services and increasing your care charges. People have had enough of ‘one rule for councillors and another rule for the rest of us’.
Caring for others is one of the most privileged jobs we can ask someone to do. We believe that staff working in care should be paid well, have access to training and be treated well at work. Happy and motivated staff working with the resources that they need provide the highest quality care.
These manifesto pledges have been developed through hundreds of conversations with people living with a disability or sensory impairment, family carers and older people and listening to what you want.
