Just a heads up on a more than strong rumour.
If you have any involvement in the world of learning disabilities, you'll know that the Valuing People organisation was set up to oversee and ensure people with learning disabilities got good quality services and to promote best practice. It was the one 'official' champion that carers and people with learning disabilities could quote in the face of poor or reducing services. Their website has carried the 'this is under review' government cuts health warning for a while, but I understand that yesterday, staff at all levels, received redundancy notices.
The greedy bankers got us into this mess, it's going to be the suffering of people with disabilities that are forced to dig us out.
