Our local authority has decided to “change the way accommodation services for people with learning disabilities is delivered”. This means that last year they took the contact away from three providers and gave it to one new provider. This has not gone well. They are now looking to put three present providers into a single new contract. Is this legal ? What about service users rights to choose ? What about the serious disruption to service users lives for no benefit to them ? At present my son is not affected but it seems it is only a matter of time. Has anyone any experience of successfully fighting this ?
