We know that many carers whose loved ones currently use these services have significant concerns over the proposed plans to close these centres.
We feel we must challenge the statement from the council that "under new Government rules [disabled people] would not have enough in their budget to purchase day care".
Guidance on this subject is clear: care plans (and therefore budgets) should be based on assessed need.
Simply put, if an assessment identifies day services as being needed, then sufficient funds should be available to enable the individual to have choice over which service or support they purchase.

I was very pleased to read (February 27) of the success of Woodside Nursery in its recent school inspection.
My four-year-old, Isla, is a pupil at Fernhill Nursery, in Rutherglen, and they too recently received five 'excellents' from school inspectors.
As parents who have been with the nursery since its launch in 2011, we are very proud of this achievement in such a very short period of time.
IT amazes me that people are paying £150,000 to live in rabbit hutch-sized glass and plywood flats above the new shops in Buchanan Street (Evening times, February 28).
Imagine how much more they would have been prepared to pay if rather than demolishing the fine Georgian blocks which once stood on the Buchanan Gardens site, the buildings had been restored and converted into 'real' flats.
