We have just read that Bristol City Councilb has responded to our calls for more support to those on Direct Payments. In particular they have set up a dedicated response for Direct Payment users, to ensure they have enough support and can access Protective Personal Equipment (packs are being made available).
Bristol City Council tells us they have also raised this nationally for advice – something else we asked them to do.
It is good to know that the Council is responding positively when we lay out what our coronavirus-related needs are.
Let us hope they continue to do so after the government suspends the Care Act!
