To consider the following Motions in accordance with Council Rules of Procedure No. 13 pdf icon PDF 88 KB

Motion G: Show Us You Care Too



Proposer: Councillor Tammy Palmer

Seconder: Councillor Josh Dixon

Council notes that:

-       Care experienced people face significant barriers that impact them throughout their lives;

-       Despite the resilience of many care experienced people, society too often does not take their needs into account;

-       Care experienced people often face discrimination and stigma across housing, health, education, relationships employment and in the criminal justice system;

-       Care experienced people often face a postcode lottery of support;

-       As corporate parents, councillors have a collective responsibility for providing the best possible care and safeguarding for the children who are looked after by us as an authority;

-       All corporate parents should commit to acting as mentors, hearing the voices of looked after children and young people and to consider their needs in any aspect of council work;

-       Councillors should be champions of our looked after children and challenge the negative attitudes and prejudice that exists in all aspects of society;

-       The Public Sector Equality Duty requires public bodies, such as councils, to eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, and victimisation of people with protected characteristics;

-       In March 2021 the Independent Review into Children’s Social Care began its work.

 

Council believes that:

-       Care experienced people are an oppressed group who face discrimination;

-       Councils have a duty to put the needs of oppressed people at the heart of decision-making through co-production and collaboration;

-       Services and policies should be assessed through Equality Impact Assessments to determine the impact of changes on people with care experience.

 

Council resolves:

-       To formally support the Show Us You Care Too campaign which calls for care experience to be made a protected characteristic as part of the Independent Review into Children’s Social Care;

-       For the council to proactively seek out and listen to the voices of care experienced people when developing new policies based on their views;

-       To continue to build on the existing ringfenced apprenticeship opportunities for care experienced people by committing to an agreed number of apprenticeships places each year delivered through the council’s levy funding;

-       To take an intersectional approach and commit to tackling the systemic discrimination and disproportionality faced by specific groups of care experienced people.

 

Motion H - Addressing the cost-of-living crisis through reducing energy bills 

Proposed by: Cllr Mike Hakata
Seconded by: Cllr Barbara Blake

This Council believes:

-          The Conservative government has failed to protect working families from unprecedented rises in energy bills;

-          The Conservative government have failed to regulate our energy market properly with dozens of firms going bust, leaving Haringey residents to foot the bill;

-          The Conservative government has failed to meet Britain’s renewable energy potential;

-          The Conservative government has failed to produce a comprehensive national strategy for insulating homes;

-          The government needs to do more to protect Haringey residents from the rise in cost of energy bills;

-          Nationalisation of (at least parts of) the energy sector would democratise and decarbonise  ...  view the full agenda text for item 14.
