2 P-05-771 Reconsider the closure of the Welsh Independent Living Grant and support disabled people to live independently
The Committee considered the petition for the first time and agreed to
· Consider the petition further in the context of the budget announcement due later that afternoon; and in the meantime
· Write to the Minister for Social Services and Public Health to share the concerns of the petitioner and ask:
o whether she will publish the results of the public consultation and minutes of the stakeholder group as requested by the petitioner;
o whether an Equality Impact Assessment of the decision was carried out and can be provided to the Committee and petitioner; and
o for her views as to whether the planned transitional arrangements will ensure that the aims of the Social Services & Wellbeing (Wales) Act will have been put into practice by local authorities before the planned closure of the Welsh Independent Living Grant.
