Responding to the news that Caerffili County Borough Council are going to “re-evaluate” their plans for day centre provision for disabled adults, Plaid Cymru MS’s Peredur Owen Griffiths and Delyth Jewell said in a joint statement: “This is welcome news for disabled adults, their families and the dedicated staff within the day centres.
“The council has correctly recognised that their consultation on this vital service was inadequate and failed to take into account the views of the people that were most affected by a withdrawal of services.
"If a proper consultation is carried out and the true weight of feeling within the county borough is measured, then we are confident that the council will have no choice but to jettison their plans and find a way to work with families to increase provision providing it is safe under coronavirus restrictions.
“We know that the council cannot be trusted on their own to come to the right decision as far as day centre users are concerned so we in Plaid Cymru – at Senedd, council and grassroots levels - will be keeping a close eye on this issue and continuing to work with families and trade unions.
“There can be no room for complacency on this matter; in the coming months or after next year’s local elections when Labour may now be planning to unveil their more unpopular plans. The campaign will continue.”
