The LGO recommends that the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council (17 016 346) pay £60'000 within 4 weeks of this decision.
The remedy is calculated based on the substantial difficulty Ms G has had since being assessed and left without formal support for over five years. This equates to £1,000 monthly x 60 months; and discusses with Ms G and her representative whether the payment will impact on her entitlement to benefits/finances and if necessary, pay an independent professional person to provide her with financial advice. I have offered Belinda CAN member advice services for this one! Anyone interested?
