Charity quizzes social services

Share this article

I HAVE read with some concern that Kingswood Park in March is consulting with relatives and residents with a view to closure.

I am the spokesman for a self help group called Cambridgeshire Older People’s Enterprise, a charity with 2,873 members with representatives in every district council area in Cambridgeshire including Fenland.

Moving older people from their homes is known to be both traumatic and dangerous and needs to be carried out with great care.

I have contacted the county council Social Services Department to ask for more information about what is proposed and what safeguards will be put in place to protect residents.
