One thought on “Children’s commissioner for England: Government must revoke changes to statutory duties | CYP Now

  1. It was completely wrong to relax rules as contained in the Coronavirus Act for children and also for adults, these suspensions need to be immediately reversed.

    It is not suspension of rules in the COVID 19 crisis that was required, but where necessary an extension of them to ensure no vulnerable person will be put at risk during this crisis.

    Vulnerable children and adults should never be put at risk and at this time more should be being done not less.

    It was not done with the safety of vulnerable children and adults in mind, but completely the reverse. It was done to relieve the pressures on Local Authorities in these difficult times.

    But pressures on Local Authorities where far from the mind of Government when they introduced the severe austerity measures, for these measures greatly increased the pressures on Local Authorities and put many children and adults in even worse vulnerable situations.

    The austerity measures and now these suspensions of care should the local authorities so wish are only adding to the crisis in Social Care.

    This Government does not care for the vulnerable within the UK, so I created the petition, Solve the crisis in Social Care.
