Disabled people 'could be forgotten' in social care reform

Five leading charities are claiming that more than a third of people with disabilities in England aren't getting enough support with their basic needs like washing, dressing or eating.

The department of health says that disability care is a priority, but charities want them to ensure that disabled people do not miss out in social care reform.

Scope is one of the charities behind the report. Chief Executive Richard Hawkes explains what they want the government to do.
