Was told about this today drug addits get £160 every two weeks even in jail. http://www.sundaypost.com/news.htm they even get housing benefits. So why are we stung to pay for care. Its so unfair. I have now also been told by the Direct Payment team that there is no problem with Direct Payments but they can't up it thats up to the Social Worker so why hasn't it been done? I also phoned the ILF and they say that Direct Payments need to be upped to help. How many others can't get care/help? We are fighting and caring for £96 every two weeks yet £160 every two weeks goes to an addit even when they have been kept in jail. The system again.
