Read CHILD ABUSE SECTION how to use button hole hidden cameras to film child abuse that will stand up in a court of law. Video evidence helps the abuse lawyers, the police and protects the abused adults and children. My 15 minute video “Advice for Whistle-blowers on you tube” is the only video that advises you to film the abuse that will stand up in a court of law that can be used for domestic abuse, child abuse and abuse in private, residential and nursing homes.

UPDATED  10th   JULY   2016    GEORGE VALENTINE  CAMPAIGNER  ACTIVIST AND ADVISER LINKED TO NATIONAL MENCAP, CARERS UK AND MANY MORE ORGANISATIONS.

 

MY NAME IS GEORGE VALENTINE I AM A SCOTSMAN LIVING AT BROOM IN  ROTHERHAM I AM AN ADVISER, ACTIVIST, AND CAMPAIGNER FOR THE RIGHTS OF DISABLED ADULTS AND THEIR CARERS THIS WEBSITE IS LINKED TO MENCAP AND CARERS UK AND MANY OTHER LARGE ORGANISATIONS AND MY FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS IS SUPPORTED BY A TOP LONDON EXPERT ON COMMUNITY CARE LAW PROFESSOR LUKE CLEMENTS WHO HOPES MY CAMPAIGN WILL PRESSURE THE GOVERNMENT AND THE COUNCILS TO STOP TREATING CARERS LIKE SECOND CLASS CITIZENS  OTHERWISE THEY WILL BE FLOODED WITH FULL TIME CARE. COUNCILS ARE BREACHING COMMUNITY CARE LAW ON THREE COUNTS, TRANSPORT CHARGES ,CHARGING DISABLED ADULTS ON INCOME SUPPORT WHEN THEIR BENEFITS ARE USED UP. THEN COMPELLING THE CARER TO PAY. MOST COUNCILS ARE ACTING UNLAWFULLY BY BREACHING COUNCIL GUIDELINES BY FAILING TO HOLD CONSULTATION. FOUR JUDICIAL REVIEWS HAVE PROVED THIS TO BE THE CASE’

 COUNCILS HAVE STARTED COLLECTING AND SENDING UP TO 8 BAGS  CONTAINING UP TO 80 ADULT DEEPLY SOILED  INCONTINENT PADS FROM CARERS HOMES MANY WITH URINE INFECTIONS TO LANDFILL. INCONTINENT PEOPLE ARE PRONE TO INFECTIONS  THIS IS HAZARDOUS WASTE SENDING TONS OF THIS TO LANDFILL CONTAINING DIARRHOEA, FAECES, URINE, BLOOD AND VOMIT THIS IS COLLECTED EVERY 14 DAYS  WITH NO  YELLOW BAGS SUPPLIED THIS STENCH IS PUT STRAIGHT INTO AN UNSEALED WHEELIE BIN, TURNING CARERS PROPERTY INTO A DUMP IT SITE FOR SEWAGE. THIS ENDANGERS PEOPLES HEALTH.

 I ADVISE ALL CARERS TO GIVE YOUR COUNCIL AN ULTIMATUM WEEKLY COLLECTION OF THIS STENCH OR  FULL TIME CARE AT UP TO £3500 A WEEK THAT COUNCILS MUST PAY. CARERS SAVE THIS COUNTRY 119 BILLION POUNDS A YEAR. ROTHERHAM COUNCIL DO THIS TO SAVE £80,000  A YEAR ONE DISABLED PERSON GOING INTO FULL TIME CARE AND THEY ARE OUT OF POCKET. 10 AND THE COUNCIL ARE IN PROBLEMS. YET THEY HAVE JUST SQUANDERED 5 MILLION POUNDS LENDING IT TO ROTHERHAM UNITED FC. 62 TIMES THE MONEY IT SAVES TO COLLECT THIS STENCH FROM CARERS HOMES. GIVE YOUR COUNCIL AN ULTIMATUM GIVE THEM 30 DAYS TO RETURN YOU TO WEEKLY COLLECTION WITH BAGS PROVIDED OR I AM UTILISING MY RIGHT  YOU MUST FIND AND PAY FOR A PLACE FOR MY DISABLED ADULT  I DID AND I WAS GIVEN WEEKLY COLLECTION WITH REINFORCED YELLOW BAGS PROVIDED. FULL TIME CARE WOULD COST THE COUNCIL £140,000 A YEAR THEY ARE CREATING A SHOCKING HEALTH HAZARD ENDANGERING PUBLIC HEALTH. YOU HAVE RIGHTS USE THEM.

I AM A CARER WITH A  40 YEAR OLD PROFOUNDLY DISABLED DAUGHTER WHO NEEDS ROUND THE CLOCK CARE FROM TWO CARERS MY WIFE AND I, SHE CAN ONLY ROCK SHOUT AND BREATH UNAIDED SHE IS DOUBLY INCONTINENT HAS A MENTAL AGE OF 3 MONTHS AND A PHYSICAL DISABILITY OF OVER 99%. SHE WOULD COST OVER £140,000 A YEAR IN FULL TIME CARE.I HAVE FOR OVER 30 YEARS CAMPAIGNED AGAINST THE INJUSTICES IMPOSED ON DISABLED PEOPLE AND THEIR CARERS.

A carer is someone whose life is in some way restricted by the need to be responsible for the care of someone who is physically or mentally disabled or both. Or caring for a person who is impaired by sickness, old age or mental illness. A disabled person living at home means a disabled family. May I thank the many carers who have told me they have learned more about carers rights in 2 hours of reading this website than they have learned in 20 to 30 years of caring.

FIGURES RELEASED IN MAY 2011 BY CARERS UK WHO ARE LINKED TO THIS WEBSITE 6.4 MILLION UNPAID CARERS SAVE THIS COUNTRY 119 BILLION POUNDS A YEAR MORE THAN IS SPENT ON RUNNING THE WHOLE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE. I will in simple and easily understood language explain how carers are being financially abused by the Government and Councils by failing to comply with Council Guidelines on Consultation and Community Care Law. By going through this website you can note the parts that are applicable to you. There is no compulsion to care and carers of disabled adults on income support who are pushed into poverty by unlawful Council charges can use FULL TIME CARE and the Council must provide this care free when you decide.

All carers of disabled adults on income support disabled from the cradle to the grave who would cost the Council in Full Time Care  £1400 to £2000 a week or £3000 if they have severe behaviour problems have been subjected to laundry and bathing services being axed. Day Centres and Respite Care Homes being closed. Services being slashed. Being charged for services that often should be free. My advise is to tell your Council you cannot manage without those services and if you can’t provide them ask the Council to inform you what is available in FULL TIME CARE. Everything to help you is explained on this website. Carers save this country 119 billion pounds a year. Your Full Time Care is provided for nothing. “Carers Are Caring Millionaires” Some disabled adults have physical disabilities of over 99% and mental ages of 6 months doubly incontinent and many are violent with behaviour problems needing 168 hours of round the clock care. In FULL TIME CARE everything financilally will be provided by the Council free as they are on Income Support.

I would like to thank you the carers, for making this website one of the most visited on the internet. I ask all carers to click “vote on the quick survey No if you believe there should be no respite charging for disabled adults on income support, and Yes if you believe there should be a charge

 I have in the past assisted on behalf of carers, Mencap’s campaign resulting in the “Fairer Charging Policy” being implemented in April 2003. It stopped some greedy councils financially abusing carers by charging their disabled adults up to £50 out their DLA of £60 to attend a day centre for 35 hours. This left the carer with £10 to look after them for the other 133 hours. Before the Fairer Charging Policy was passed I advised those carers to give the council the other £10 and to look after them in FULL TIME CARE. Many took this option up which helped the law to be changed.

By breaching Community Care Law councils are unlawfully charging carers millions that should be provided free all charges for services by law must be paid by the disabled adult never the carer. Council charges for transport to Day Centres when all their mobility component of DLA is used up on a motability vehicle means carers are paying this breaches the law. When a disabled adult on income support who would cost up to £3500 a week in care is given a pittance of £200 a week JUST 6% OF THEIR FULL TIME CARE COSTS.

Carers pay out of this £200.  £50 for a mobility vehicle. 12 extra washes due to double incontinence £2 a wash and 50p for drying £30 then £35 – 70 for contribution for Independent Living Fund help and £28 for meals and drinks to attend a day centre £10 to replace one soiled garment leaves £47 to live on. Then the council wants you to pay  up to £100 for respite care. that you can’t afford. A child of 5 knows you can’t pay this so don’t pay it they are breaking Community Care Law not you. No disabled adult and carer has been taken to court for non payment of a few hundred pounds when Councils would be faced with a packed suit case and a bill for up to a £100,000 a year in FULL TIME CARE this is the last thing councils want.

The Government expect councils to recoup a high percentage of money by charging disabled adults for services that can only be met by councils breaching Community Care Law and the way Councils can stop a flood of disabled adults going into full time care is by following the guidance of “nationwidecarers” Mencap and Carers UK. Councils must automatically exempt from charges any disabled person in receipt of Income Support. You can learn your rights by reading this website and tell other carers.
