Jammy is a disabled person who employs personal assistants and says, “My direct payments are being cut by 80 per cent. I have been told to sack two of my personal assistants and cut everyone else to a maximum of two hours per day. My PAs want to go to tribunal, but don’t want to hurt me. I told them I don’t have the money to give them either a job or compensation. One of them is about to go on maternity leave. I am depressed beyond belief. All my needs were considered critical in my last care plan. My parents have been fighting to get a carer’s assessment for two years. My dad said he will have to give up work. He is very depressed about this, and I feel that is my fault.”
