Is care satisfactory? YourSay.

THE Disabled People's Direct Action Network (DAN) has recently carried out two public protests against Birmingham City Council, the Birmingham Mail reported.

DAN steadfastly maintains the council is providing inadequate or inappropriate social care or housing-related services.

Birmingham City Council has responded by claiming that it is merely obeying government guidelines rather than clearly refuting serious allegations DAN has directed towards it.

What does the silent majority think, especially disabled people, older people or unpaid carers? Are they satisfied with social care services or housing-related services they receive? Have they secured fully accessible rented houses from BCC or their partner organisations, housing associations offi-cially classified as registered social landlords? Mr Paul Bowley, West Midlands DAN
