MSP gives backing to care home
ARGYLL and Bute MSP Michael Russell has shown his support for the Save Glen Iosal campaign.
Mr Russell signed the petition to ‘ save’ the 25-flat sheltered accommodation in Tobermory.
The Argyll and Bute Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP) is looking to withdraw funding from the Trust Housing Association, the organisation that runs the care home.
This will result in warden support at the 25-flat complex being cut from 35 hours to 25.
A petition asking for the decision to be reversed has now been signed by 957 people.
Mr Russell wrote to the Trust Housing Association opposing the changes to supported living on Mull.
