A VOLUNTARY group which works with care providers in York fears it could lose all its council funding as a result of planned council budget cuts.

The York-based Independent Care Group (ICG) acts as link between the council and dozens of care providers who care for thousands of people in the city and the surrounding area.

But ICG Chair Mike Padgham says that, after more than 25 years of being supported by the council, he fears it could lose all its approximately £20,000-a-year of funding.

He says there has been no consultation - but he was told in a telephone conversation the funding would go.

Any funding cuts were ‘bound to have an impact on the delivery of social care in the York area',  he warned.
