I was unable to participate due to being blind (my eyes have now been fixed, thanks to the NHS) and I suspect that others with acute health issues, whose daily life is hard enough, will similarly have been unable to participate. I asked my Social Worker to assist me in making a statement, but that didn't happen. (I also had to reapply for benefits, so that took priority.)why did they not consult anyone? reading the salaries that the councilors get paid makes me very angry.
