Creating a fairer Britain
On 10 November 2010 the Equality and Human Rights Commission launched a Formal Inquiry using its powers under Section 16 of the Equality Act 2006. The Inquiry looked at the effectiveness of the English care and support system in protecting and promoting the human rights of older people (aged 65 and over) requiring or receiving home based care and support. We had a range of evidence submitted from various carers, organisations older people and their families.
The Commission worked with an external Advisory Group which comprised expert representatives from across the sector. Four Advisory Group members are featured below. They tell us why the Inquiry was needed and why you should get involved.
