The last people I want working with my daughter, who is mentally handicapped and dependent on others for all her needs, are those who have to be coerced into this work, and who have no interest or aptitude for it. My daughter and all those like her need skilled, well-trained and motivated people to care for them. As it is, social services where I live in Surrey allow anybody to attend to the personal needs of vulnerable adults without any investigation into their suitability. This sort of care is of course cheap. The new scheme kills two birds with one stone. It manipulates the unemployment figures and makes the cost of looking after the most dependent less expensive.
