Chief Executive write a letter of apology

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

This petition calls on the Chief Executive of Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) to write a letter of apology to every individual who did not have an annual assessment completed, as best practice required, under the Care Act 2014 between 1 August 2017 and 31 July 2018 and to state publicly how many individuals this affects.


The answer to a question tabled at the Rotherham Council meeting on 25 June 2018 stated:

“It is correct that the Care Act [2014] requires the local authority to ensure that the support package an individual receives is adequate and proportional. Best practice requires the local authority to review an individual annually. However, some individuals due to their complex and changing needs may be reviewed several times a year.
