Disabled people getting charged for their social care (on top of the taxes they’ve already paid) is not a sexy topic. It doesn’t get the headlines. But it is one of the biggest scandals in this country, where disabled people are forced into poverty just because they need care. twitter.com/mencap_charity…

We must create a fairer #SocialCare system for disabled people and protect their financial future. The government should ​look again at how any reforms can work better for working-age people who rely on social care, and make sure their plans are fair for everyone. 3/3
Lots of people with a #LearningDisability rely on #SocialCare for everyday support. But often disabled people of working-age have not had time to save enough money to help them pay for the support they need. And now many are being hit hardest by the cost of living crisis. 2/3
Last night, MPs had the chance to make a life-changing impact for thousands by ending #SocialCare charges for disabled people under 40. But by voting against the changes, there is a risk the social care reforms could ignore the needs of working-age people with a disability. 1/3
