The equality watchdog has asked the government for significant new powers, including the ability to inspect buildings that are flouting access laws. The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said it needed stronger powers to hold “powerful and well-resourced” governments and large organisations to account. But it also said that it should be made independent of government, and accountable instead to parliament. The calls came in a blog by the commission’s chair, David Isaac, which was written to mark 10 years since the watchdog was founded. Following his comments, the government told Disability News Service that it had already begun working with EHRC to plan a “tailored review” of the commission, which will look at whether its powers “remain appropriate” and will also consider the issue of its independence. The review is expected to begin in April next year and finish the following month, although it might not be published until 2019. Isaac said in his blog that the commission had

More than half of councils expect to overspend their adult social care budgets this year by up to nearly £21 million each, while all local authorities face having to help pay a potential adult social care bill of nearly £270 million to fund six years of back-pay for sleep-in shifts, according to a new survey published today by the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS).

 

The poll shows that sleep-in pay costs are the second biggest concern – after ring-fenced investment money – for directors of adult social services directors in England as they approach winter pressures facing the sector.

 

The survey found that the average cost – for councils, providers and self-funders, per council area – to pay for six years of backpay for sleep-in shifts is £1.78 million. If this figure was applied to the 151 councils in England providing adult social care the total would amount to £269 million.

 

The potential bill comes as more than half (53%) of Directors forecast an overspend on adult social care budgets this financial year. The average estimated overspend is £2 million, with the highest at £20.8 million.

The Conservative minister for care services turned down at least four invitations to speak about adult social care at her party’s annual conference, while disabled people and other experts warned those meetings about the funding crisis facing the system. Jackie Doyle-Price refused to attend at least four social care fringe meetings at the conference in Manchester, Disability News Service has established. Health secretary Jeremy Hunt also ignored the issue of social care in his conference speech. Those who spoke at the fringe meetings Doyle-Price snubbed lined up to warn of the crisis facing the social care system, with one Tory MP warning that it “simply isn’t good enough” and that many people were “not getting the care they need”. In August, the UK government was told it was “going backwards” on independent living by the UN committee on the rights of persons with disabilities. Last week, Barbara Keeley, shadow minister for social care and mental health, told Labour’s annual conference
