Hold Solihull MBC Accountable For Abuse of Power & Corruption

This Petition is aimed at highlighting the corruption & abuse of power pertaining at Solihull MBC (Social Services Dept).  Ian James, as Director of Adult Services, is ultimately responsible for the draconian and shabby actions of his staff and the devastation caused to the Parkes Family.  These people have acted in a malicious, draconian, unethical manner and are guilty of attempting to rip away the final vestiges of dignity of a vulnerable, frail and terminally ill man and his family.

Every last penny that Solihull MBC are illegally withholding must be paid to the Parkes family - as should future personal allowance payments.

It would appear that those in residential facilities are expected to dress in dead men's clothes in order that their personal monies may boost the coffers of corrupt local councils.  In this case, one of the wealthiest boroughs in the country - Solihull.  Multiplied by the number of people in care facilities nationally, this is Theft on a massive scale!

*****

Background:
My husband was placed in a care home where neglect & abuse pertained.  The CQC passed the complaint back to Solihull MBC who did not adequately address the issue, allowing the care home manager to investigate the home - and herself.

There are many issues where Solihull MBC have fallen down on their duty of care. 

This council also went to the DWP and had my husband's monies stopped at source... having themselves made Appointees.  As no money was going into my husband's bank to pay direct debits etc., this left him £20,000 in debt, negating any policies he may have held.  My home was also put at risk.

Over the past 14 plus months, Solihull MBC have not paid my husband any personal allowances, resulting in his wife purchasing every single personal item he needs to make his end days tolerable.   

This Personal Allowance is the right of every person in residential care, and may not be withheld by the council for any reason.  But that is exactly what Solihull MBC via Social Services/Adult Care did - the Director of Social Services/Adult Care is Ian James.

Neither will this Council have any correspondence with my family, saying only "get a lawyer."

Let us please hold these people accountable for what they are doing.  And bring this issue to light on a national scale because it most definitely is a National Scandal!

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME ON SOLIHULL MBC AND THOSE WHO ARE GLEEFULLY LEAVING ONCE PROUD CITIZENS TO DIE IN POVERTY, CLOTHED IN RAGS!
