  1. I cannot comment on Peterborough decisions, I can state that outsourcing is being opposed here in Wales and SS e.g. taken to task by the welsh office for so doing, mainly because they 'outsourced' to areas with unqualified staff to assist those with Hearing loss. I urge those with hearing loss who require extra support to check out ANY area they are referred to (I did and found an area deaf and HI were referred to, and to ask for help had no-one with any experience of sensory loss ! We must refuse to be referred to charities also that have no continuity of funding, since once we abdicate the state support option we are at the whims of charity handouts and most are in dire straits. My SS dept has been referred to the ombudsman and welsh office for trying to 'dump' those with hearing loss elsewhere.
