Signature information

We call upon the City council to stop the privatisation of in house Homecare services. The people of Bristol value the in-house service, for the quality and stability of the service it provides to our elderly and vulnerable adults.

Background information

Homecare Assistants provide a vital social care service in Bristol, helping infirm older people, the disabled, those with mental health problems and the terminally ill to remain living with some dignity in their own homes. We wash and dress people morning and evening, getting them settled for a decent nights sleep. For people who are bed-ridden we turn them so they don’t get sores, clean them up and make them comfortable. We change incontinence pads and catheter bags. We make sure people eat regular meals and take their tablets. We really do care, please support us, the service must not be privatised.
