Sinn Féin MLAs Colm Gildernew and Ian Milne meet with the Human Rights Commission to discuss the recent Commission for Older People’s report into Dunmurry Manor care home.

Following the meeting the party spokesperson on carers Colm Gildernew said, “We had a productive meeting with the HRC this afternoon on how we can ensure the highest quality and standards for adult social care in line with the COPNI's recommendations.

“The Older Person's Commissioner's report should be a catalyst for much-needed systemic change in adult social care.”

Sinn Féin spokesperson for Older people Ian Milne added,

“It is important that any wrong doing is identified, reported and dealt with in a timely and effective manner. Everyone in care, regardless of their age, must have their rights and dignity respected. The COPNI report raises serious concerns about the adult social care system and we are determined to ensure these concerns are fully addressed.”
