In hard-pressed Salford, the government expects ordinary residents to pay more council tax.
There is a crisis in the social care system after 8 years of Tory rule. Care homes are closing, hospitals are full, and vulnerable elderly patients are not receiving support.
The government have claimed they are putting more money into social care – but in fact they are just moving money from one pot to another. In Salford this means they have taken even more money out of our budgets, whilst wealthier areas get a bonus.
Salford has lost £2.2m in the recent changes, whilst leafy Buckinghamshire gained nearly £1.2m.
