Trafford Council Pays For Dating For Those In Its Care

Trafford council
BBC.CO.UK - Aug 16 - A Greater Manchester council has admitted people in its
social service care are allowed to buy internet dating subscriptions out of public funds. It comes after a Sunday Telegraph investigation found money from other UK councils was being used to hire sex workers for people in social care. Trafford Council said the personal budgets were usually used to pay for care assistants or to buy equipment. Dating website subscriptions would also be an acceptable expense, it said. Thousands of people in the UK use personal health budgets to buy services with cash allocated to them by local authorities. 9RD2QXQXAUX9 http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-10983912
