Care crisis, MP is told

ELDERLY residents have told Bulwell’s Labour MP Graham Allen that their generation is facing a care crisis.

Pensioners from the town and other parts of Mr Allen’s Nottingham North constituency met the MP as part of a lobby at the Houses Of Parliament.

The event was organised by the Care And Support Alliance, an organisation of more than 50 charities, including Age UK.

At the heart of the debate was rising concern over the cutting of £1 billionfrom local-council budgets for older people’s social care.
