Disability support workers in Lancaster and Morecambe face a pay cut of around 30 per cent as part of county council budget cuts.

Funding to Creative Support, a non-profit, charitable organisation commissioned by the council to provide support for people with learning disabilities, is being slashed.

The services were provided by the NHS until they were taken over by Manchester-based Creative Support in 2007, when all 47 staff employed at the time of the takeover had their pay terms and conditions protected by a TUPE agreement.
