Dear Department for Work and Pensions,

Please could you direct me to recorded data as to how much 'direct payments' costs local government?

Do I have to apply to each local authority or is there a general database?

Also; Why don't DIP ask for receipts as Local Authorities do, is there any reason as they are breaking the law and perhaps all Direct Payments should be scrapped, private care agencies cost far more than direct payments and it all seems odd that this violation of various laws - especially by Kensington RBKC) who are very vexatious, bullying and demanding of vulnerable people who are quite happy receiving lesser amounts for care packages - one person I spoke to at ADKC (Action Disability Kensington and Chelsea) is obviously capable of full-time work and not in pain - yet she has a 24 hour care-package costing approx 800 PW- myself am much MUCH more disabled, am being hectored and abused by RBKC for not complaining about the 50 (approx) Pw I have been receiving from there as a care-package- I have been beaten up twice (no reason at all) in my home from previous carers sent by Derek Myers at RBKC and the SSD/social work department there - so now they have removed my 50 pounds, I am left without help, despite being totally housebound and in pain- I don't understand why all this happens? Can't the DIP just add some extra money for the truly disabled so we don't have to deal with horror from RBKC and similar councils violating article 8 and other acts of law, the authoritarian intrusive evil must stop, it is vile, cruel, inhuman and we have no recourse to help, we are falsely accused with many lies from the heads of councils and abused/assaulted if we complain? Cant you just have central government cut Direct Payments to local authorities all together and re-assess who is actually ill and whom isn;t?
Thanks

Yours faithfully,

Liz R

Personal Budgets and Direct payments

RBKC (one council) in direct Violation/Breach of Human Rights Act
regarding Direct Payments for Disabled Clients by exhorting and
forcing the current pressures on frail/disabled/sick residents into
producing what amounts to a civic duty thus a violation of Article
4 (below) plus the details requested by RBKC violate Article 8 and
3 due to demands plus authoritarianism and lack of ***empathy for
people in pain**** by forcing local policy over law which they tend
to alter unilaterally to suit themselves, that is all documented.

People like myself can be quite happy with minimal Direct Payments
without incurring bigger expense to all.

RBKC Have ceased payments to me as chronically disabled person,
that were 50 GBP PW- they intend to replace it with a service that
will cost approx 3 times as much, when I am quite happy with the
Direct Payment Scheme.

I have been physically assaulted twice by carers they have sent
previously and more horror inflicted by them can be seen here
www.elizabeth-R.blogspot.com - my disabled and (now) mute
son at risk living with a serial law-breaking and violent abuser
(long story, please read the blog)

RBKC are demanding too much, too often and are entirely
inconsistent (dates of receipts required/change of social workers
and so on)

HUMAN RIGHTS ACT;

Article 3: Inhuman Treatment

[] or to inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment

Article 4 Slavery (d) any work or service which forms part of
normal civic obligations.

Article 8: Right to privacy
(1) Everyone has the right for his private and family life, his
home and his correspondence.
(2) There shall be no interference by a public authority with the
exercise of this right except such as is in accordance with the law
and is necessary in a democratic society in the interests of
national security, public safety or the economic well-being of the
country, for the prevention of disorder or crime, for the
protection of health or morals, or for the protection of the rights
and freedoms of others.

Social Services seem entirely oblivious to the physical pain
disabled people face daily, let alone the distress they cause, and
worse they seem to enjoy making life difficult for people in pain.

Have you any information broader information / complaints regarding
these violations that are violated by local government departments?

Thank you

Yours faithfully,

Liz

I totally support the lady who has sent in this request. I too have been a victim if this violation of Human Rights by JCP, Atos healthcare and DWP. They simply do not listen to disabled people, do not care about the pain they cause, mental or pysical to the most vulnerable people. They are shameless corporate criminals in my opinion with no compassion at all. They persecute us.

I agree of course Yvonne S Taylor 'shameless corporate criminals' says it all (thank you)

PS. A litle Bird told me that all Direct Payments will be phased out so corporate bods will have total control (legal depts) over care, will def cause civil war, no two ways about it
