Motion text

That this House notes that the Government guidance entitled `Social Care for Deafblind Children and Adults` was issued five years ago, giving new duties to local authorities to identify deafblind people and to offer them specialist services; welcomes the fact that many deafblind people have received improved social services as a result of this guidance; further notes, however, that research by Sense shows that 40 per cent. of local authorities do not provide any deafblind people with one-to-one support and that 10 per cent. of authorities have not identified a single deafblind person; and urges the Government to act to ensure that the guidance is implemented in all areas of the country.
