Northamptonshire charity warns people could be left isolated after funding cut

A Northamptonshire charity says hundreds of elderly and disabled people in the county could be left isolated - because it's had its funding cut.

The Northampton Door-To-Door service's grant has been reduced by more than £20,000.

It means the buses will make five thousand fewer trips.

The Borough Council says a fund of over £500,000 is split between various organisations every year and is always oversubscribed.

It says it's working with the service to find other sources of funding.

"We get words like disastrous and awful and we don't know what to do, we can't work without you, we'll be prisoners in our own home, it's the sort of the typical quotes.

These people rely on us to get out."
