A bitter blow

The Rotherham Advertiser reports

Closure of learning disability centres confirmed by council

FOUR centres for adults with learning disabilities will be closed as council bosses ask customers to set up their own activities.

Cabinet members approved a plan to shut day centres Addison at Maltby and Oaks in Wath in a move to save more than £3 million.

Two respite centres — Treefields in Wingfield and Quarryhill at Wath — will also be decommissioned and Parkhill in Maltby is likely to follow suit after more consultation.
