Suspension of the Care Act - act immediately
22 March 2020
DR UK has serious concerns about the implications of the Coronavirus Bill on human rights, especially the rights of vulnerable groups, including disabled people.

The second reading of the Bill is on Monday 23 March – tomorrow. We are calling on disabled people to act now, today, on this.
Our key concern is that the Bill suspends the Care Act. The Bill will effectively free local authorities of their duties to provide social care support under the Care Act 2014 and will only oblige local authorities to provide support in cases where the human rights of disabled people will be breached.

I have posted this here also as this is the part of the forum most folk are visiting at the moment.
