DEMANDS FOR INQUIRY INTO COMMUNITY HOMES

Relatives of mentally handicapped people in Welsh community homes are calling for an inquiry into the way they are being cared for, the Western Mail reports (p6).

Their demands follow a damning report by inspectors into homes in the former West Glamorgan area, which found that some care staff had been taken on without references, and some given jobs without adequate police checks on their backgrounds.

The report, by the Welsh Office's social services inspectorate, was discussed last night by Neath and Port Talbot CBC's social services committee.

The committee, which has taken over responsibility for care in the community of adults with learning difficulties, from West Glamorgan CC, approved a plan to ensure that the mistakes would not be repeated.
