This petition has been actioned by Hammersmith & Fulham Coalition against Community Cuts (HAFCAC)

Hammersmith and Fulham Council are seeking to charge disabled and older people for essential services which enable them to live as equal citizens in the community.

The proposed charges of up to £12.40 per hour would negatively impact on the well being of disabled and older people who use essential community care services.

In March 2006, the Labour administration said it would stop charging for home care services. In April 2006, a spokesperson for the Conservative group said, “A Conservative Council will not reintroduce Home Care Charging. The Conservative group has included this as a manifesto pledge.”

Many local disabled and older people feel cheated that the present Conservative Council is proposing a U turn on its election pledge.

Local residents wish to strongly object to the Council's plans.

We, the undersigned, request that Hammersmith & Fulham Council, stops its proposal to introduce charges levied against disabled and older people for essential community care services.
