McCarthy furious at decision to end autism family support service

Alliance Health spokesperson Kieran McCarthy MLA has reacted to the decision by the South Eastern Trust not to continue funding for a family support service for relatives of children with autism.

Kieran McCarthy MLA said: “I am absolutely furious that the Trust has decided to end funding for this scheme.

“This is totally unacceptable and I would call on them to continue funding the scheme. This vitally important service must be continued, it will be an enormous loss if the Trust do not reconsider its funding.

“The support service delivered massive benefits to families of children with autism, so I can not understand why it has been discontinued.”
