Motion text

That this House is aware that social care can provide people with mental health problems the practical support they need to stay well by supporting them with their washing and dressing, shopping, bills and appointments; notes that it can also play an important part in stabilising mental health problems by helping people to cope with their daily lives; is therefore alarmed by reports that the Government is considering the introduction of a national eligibility threshold which will exclude most sufferers from support; and calls on the Government not to adopt such criteria which is shortsighted, unfair and discriminatory.
