A college course for over-19s with impairments or severe or moderate learning difficulties has previously been free of charge to families. Now, it has reduced its college hours and introduced fees, with no notice given to families. Alison says, “I was delighted to learn my son had been accepted on the course. As carers, we save the government thousands of pounds in potential care, and we don’t mind because we love our sons, daughters and elderly relatives. Yes, cuts have to be made, but for goodness’ sake, don’t penalise us any more.”
