FOR THE ATTENTION OF DEPUTY HEALTH AND SOCIAL SERVICES MINISTER JULIE MORGAN AM
It was really good to meet you once again at my home on January 24th. I would like to thank you for listening intently to the evidence presented by myself, Sheila Meadows OBE and Vic Grout as to why the Welsh Government need to save the Welsh Independent Living Grant (WILG).
I am writing as a concerned WILG recipient to enquire when you will be able to reveal how the Welsh Government propose to rectify the situation caused by the imminent closure of WILG? I must push for a solution to the predicament I find myself in as time is running out and I still have not completed my reassessment thanks to the incompetence of my local authority. We were assured back in April 2018, that these reassessments would be completed by September 30, 2018. This deadline was then pushed back to November 30, 2018. The fact that this deadline has been missed should not be a surprise to anyone. I am still struggling to cope with the inadequate levels of care and support that I currently receive, with no idea when this situation will improve. Last night I had to call my dad to assist me at 01:36. This is an untenable situation.
For your information I have included two links, at the foot of this letter, that will help you to build a clearer picture of what is going on. I have faith in Welsh Labour to do the right thing and act now before the situation gets any worse. The maintenance of the tripartite system is an absolute necessity.
Please note that this letter is written with the deepest respect and understanding and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Nathan Lee Davies
