Shaun O’Leary – Exec. Head of Adults and Safeguarding

Commissioner Perspective

Steve Strong - NDTI and Sarah Maquire – Director of Quality Choice Support

Feeling Settled: Changing a service from Res Care to SL

Housing Benefit Consultation

Key Points/Feedback from event

Consultation opened 19th July closes 9th Oct.


Gov states HB for people in Supported Housing not working

Issues around “exempt” status conflicting with SL requirements

Complexity etc.

  • Calculated in simpler ways
  • “Cost neutral” not cost cutting
  • Intend that private landlords can access same level as NfP landlords
  • 2 Categories for non registered Providers
  • People in Conventional Supported Housing
  • People with more specific housing needs
  • Registered Providers – no real change


Simplification fails to acknowledge different costs.

Whole range of uncertainties and potential dangers with little detail

given as to how will work.

General consensus that there is not enough detail to form real opinion

on proposals.

Fear around “typical” costs Vs “actual” potential to be cuts in reality

Other News

The Low Review:

Personal Mobility in State-Funded Residential Care

Call for Evidence

The review invites anyone with an interest, particularly people

living in  state funded residential care, care home providers and

local authorities,

to share their views and insights on how personal mobility needs

are met for people living in residential care. 

Learning Disability Coalition response to ODI report

on Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.

In 2009, the UK signed the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities which aims to

make sure that disabled people are treated in the same way as everyone else. 

This year the Government must report back to the UN about how well it has put the

Convention into practice.  The Office for Disability Issues has put together a draft report on the

Government’s progress, which the Learning Disability Coalition has responded to.

The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has

published the results of its inquiry into disability-related harassment.

New figures released in September showed that disability hate crimes rose by more

than a fifth in 2010. Across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, police recorded 1,569

incidents in which the victim thought the alleged crime was motivated by their disability,

compared with just 1,294 in 2009.
