The Council services offering home support to the elderly and vulnerable are on the brink of collapse according to a Bradford Councillor, Jackie Whiteley
The claim came when a major firm decided to pull its services from Bradford district indicating the hourly rates paid by the Council were too low.
The Care provider Seva Care told Bradford Telegraph and Argus that the Council rates fell below national guidelines
This is the second care provider to leave the Bradford District after Hica Care withdrew last year.
The Council Deputy Leader Val Slater accused Mrs Whiteley of scaremongering and said that the new social care levy on council tax would raise a further £3 million for the district which would be used in full to raise the hourly carer rate.
Whatever the truth of the dispute the fact remains that if too few carers are offered to vulnerable groups the prospect of care being insufficient and negligent is high.
