Council to pay woman £7,000 after inadequate assessments left her without proper care

The Local Government Ombudsman is showing its teeth. I am sure there are more cases like this out there.If this affects you we can help

A council has been criticised for the way it administered a disabled woman’s direct payments and failed to investigate her complaints, leaving her without adequate support for more than two years.

The Local Government Ombudsman has reminded social care teams they must provide clear advice to adults with disabilities to help them negotiate the benefits system, following the report which found Central Bedfordshire had not carried out an accurate financial assessment for a woman known as Ms J since 2010
