Demands on LD carers are unrelenting

We have 2 specialist workers who support carers of adults with learning disabilities (LD) across Bristol and South Gloucestershire. In the past this work was funded by statutory services, however since April 2018 we have had to find this funding ourselves from alternative sources. This costs us £45,000 per year; and we are extremely grateful to the charitable trusts who have supported us so far.
