Prospective MP Jackie Porter has won the fight to stop the Conservative cuts to services for disabled children.
Tory council bosses had decided to make a two-thirds cut to the budget for short breaks for disabled children. But Jackie worked with local families to get the Conservatives to change their minds.
“I’m pleased we have stopped these damaging cuts,” said Jackie. “It’s only a pity that we had to fight for them in the first place, the Lib Dems would not even have consider cutting such an important service.”
Short-breaks give families support so disabled children can access everyday activities like swimming lessons and scouts.
