About: Community Links

(as a carer),

I am a carer and the person I care for comes back from Community Links mostly more stressed, down and anxious than previously. From what I have heard from others that go there as well is not alone in this. To me the place seems to make some clients there more anxious, they appear to be disrespectful towards a lot, harassing plus treating them like children at times.

The service users seem to be in fear of been told that they can't use the service anymore and this can happen anytime. The is only one person who seems to know what they are doing and do it very well. I'm afraid the others do come across as doing more harm than good, and so far bringing this to Managements attention has done no good.

It would be nice if someone impartial could look into this.
