PM announces up to £15m extra funding for mental health services

first_img Tagged with: Charity Commission Funding health mental health About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. PM announces up to £15m extra funding for mental health services The Prime Minister also pledged support for the voluntary sector, with a key part of her shared society vision being the creation of “an environment in which our charities and social enterprises can thrive,” which, she added, also meant “recognising, supporting and championing those who lead the way in shaping a civil society that can bring the talents of so many in our voluntary sector to bear on some of the great social challenges that we face together.”Support for the Points of Light programme, the #iwill campaign, and the National Citizen Service will also continue, while the development of social finance will be a priority.John Low, chief executive of the Charities Aid Foundation, issued this response to the PM’s speech:“At this critical moment in our country’s history, charities have a crucial role to play in developing a better society at home and securing Britain’s new place on the global stage.“Mrs May rightly recognises the need for our charities and social enterprises to thrive. Her Shared Society must be more than a shift in the way Government makes policy; it must mean working in tandem with Britain’s charities at home and abroad to share and strengthen our values, unite our communities and give people a voice.”Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, also commented on the speech, saying:“Charities and volunteering are at the heart of our shared society. The prime minister rightly credited the campaigning role of charities in shining a light on the shortfalls in mental health provision, and this is also an excellent example of an area where charities and volunteering are a necessary part of the solution. With that in mind, I was heartened to hear her support for the National Citizen Service, and the volunteering initiatives #iwill and the Points of Light Awards. Volunteering is the clearest expression of the will of millions of people to take an active role in society, and we should take every opportunity to reinforce its value.”  111 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 11 January 2017 | Newscenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13  112 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 Theresa May has announced plans to make up to £15 million of extra funding available for mental health services in a speech made at the Charity Commission’s annual meeting.In the speech, given on 9th January, May set out her vision for a shared society, and spoke at length on mental wellbeing:“I want to ensure more people get the support they need, when they need it, in their communities.

DHS, USDA Move to Protect American Farmers and Ensure Continued Flow…

first_img DHS, USDA Move to Protect American Farmers and Ensure Continued Flow of America’s Food Supply Home Indiana Agriculture News DHS, USDA Move to Protect American Farmers and Ensure Continued Flow of… By USDA Communications – Apr 15, 2020 Facebook Twitter Previous articlePurdue Extension Extending Ban on Face-To-Face Events Until July 1Next articleEthanol Industry Enduring More Headwinds as Stocks Reach New All-Time High USDA Communications Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE The Department of Homeland Security, with the support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), has announced a temporary final rule to change certain H-2A requirements to help U.S. agricultural employers avoid disruptions in lawful agricultural-related employment, protect the nation’s food supply chain, and lessen impacts from the coronavirus (COVID-19) public health emergency. These temporary flexibilities will not weaken or eliminate protections for U.S. workers.Under this temporary final rule, an H-2A petitioner with a valid temporary labor certification who is concerned that workers will be unable to enter the country due to travel restrictions can start employing certain foreign workers who are currently in H-2A status in the United States immediately after United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) receives the H-2A petition, but no earlier than the start date of employment listed on the petition. To take advantage of this time-limited change in regulatory requirements, the H-2A worker seeking to change employers must already be in the United States and in valid H-2A status.Additionally, USCIS is temporarily amending its regulations to protect the country’s food supply chain by allowing H-2A workers to stay beyond the three-year maximum allowable period of stay in the United States. These temporary changes will encourage and facilitate the continued lawful employment of foreign temporary and seasonal agricultural workers during the COVID-19 national emergency. Agricultural employers should utilize this streamlined process if they are concerned with their ability to bring in the temporary workers who were previously authorized to work for the employer in H-2A classification. At no point is it acceptable for employers to hire illegal aliens.“This Administration has determined that continued agricultural employment, currently threatened by the COVID-19 pandemic, is vital to maintaining and securing the country’s critical food supply chain. The temporary changes announced by USCIS provide the needed stability during this unprecedented crisis,” said Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad F. Wolf.“USDA welcomes these additional flexibilities provided by the Department of Homeland Security today,” said Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue. “Providing flexibility for H-2A employers to utilize H-2A workers that are currently in the United States is critically important as we continue to see travel and border restrictions as a result of COVID-19. USDA continues to work with the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Labor and the Department of State to minimize disruption and make sure farmers have access to these critical workers necessary to maintain the integrity in our food supply.”The temporary final rule is effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. If the new petition is approved, the H-2A worker will be able to stay in the United States for a period of time not to exceed the validity period of the Temporary Labor Certification. DHS will issue a new temporary final rule in the Federal Register to amend the termination date of these new procedures in the event DHS determines that circumstances demonstrate a continued need for the temporary changes to the H-2A regulations.The H-2A nonimmigrant classification applies to alien workers seeking to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature in the United States, usually lasting no longer than one year, for which able, willing, and qualified U.S. workers are not available.last_img read more

Justice Bharati Dangre heard the 25-year-old’s bail application and observed- “The mere fact that the DNA report does not support paternity is not grounds to release the applicant at this stage. There is every likelihood that he will pressurize the victim girl once being released on bail. The fact that he is a young boy itself is not sufficient to release him on bail, in light of the material collected by the investigating agency against him.” The applicant was arrested in relation to FIR filed against him for the offences punishable under Section 376 of the IPC and Sections 3, 4, 5(G), 5(J)II), 6, 8 and 12 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012. After the investigation, a charge-sheet was filed in the Court of District and Special Judge, Pune on September 25, 2019. The accused has been charged under Section 376(d) of IPC along with two other accused persons and also the relevant provisions of the POCSO Act. Advocates Subhash Karmarkar and Adv Samarth Karmarkar submitted on behalf of the applicant that he has been roped into the said offence without any rhyme and reason. Placing heavy reliance on the DNA report of the child born out of the alleged act of sexual assault which do not trace the applicant as the father of the baby girl, they argued that the DNA report sufficiently absolves the applicant of the act of sexual assault. The victim delivered a baby girl on November 6, 2018 and since her age at the time of the pregnancy was found to be below 18 years, a Koregaon Park Police station official had made inquiries with her mother. A statement was given by the victim in presence of her mother and member of the Women Vigilance Committee. The victim was persuading her education in Morris High School Wadgaon Sheri when she was acquainted with a girl named Shraddha. When she was undergoing her 12th Board examination in February-March 2018, she along with her two friends were studying together at Shraddha’s house, and there she was introduced to the applicant who was residing in the same locality. On the third day, when she was introduced to the applicant, her friends took her to his house. For some reason, the other two female friends left her alone in the company of the applicant and the applicant took advantage of the situation. His two male friends arrived in his house with some drinking and eating stuff. The applicant offered the victim some soft drink which contained some substance which made her feel sleepy and dizzy. The applicant asked the victim to rest in the bed-room while her friends returned. It is then alleged that the applicant and his two friends committed rape on her. Fearing the outcome of the act, the prosecutrix did not reveal the incident or the fact that she was pregnant, to her mother. It was only when she had pain in her stomach on December 5, 2018, her mother took her to the hospital and it was revealed to her that the victim is pregnant. After hearing submissions on behalf of the prosecution and the applicant, Court observed- “The charge-sheet contains sufficient material against the applicant. The case against the applicant is serious one of committing gang rape by three persons and taking advantage of a situation of a poor helpless victim girl. The applicant has indulged into an act of rape. The mere fact that the DNA report does not support the paternity is not ground to release the applicant at this stage. There is every likelihood that he will pressurize the victim girl once being released on bail. The fact that he is a young boy itself is not sufficient to release him on bail, in light of the material collected by the investigating agency against him. No case for his release on bail is made out.”Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]  Next Storylast_img read more

It was also submitted that both those FIRs have been proceeded with for investigation and now investigation was being carried on by the CID of the State of West Bengal.

Karnataka High Court Urges State To Constitute SIT To Probe Child-Trafficking Cases In Bengaluru

first_imgNews UpdatesKarnataka High Court Urges State To Constitute SIT To Probe Child-Trafficking Cases In Bengaluru Mustafa Plumber18 May 2021 3:24 AMShare This – xObserving that there are serious cases of child trafficking in the Bengaluru, the Karnataka High Court recently directed the state government to consider whether it wants to constitute a special investigation team for probing cases of child trafficking. A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Suraj Govindaraj said “Now the State Government will have to come out with its plans on the recommendations made by Karnataka State Legal Services Authority (KSLSA) for dealing with the serious issue of trafficking of children. The State Government will have to consider whether it wants to constitute a special investigation team. It is only after taking the response of the State Government, we propose to issue detailed directions.” The direction was given while hearing a petition filed by Letzkit Foundation highlighting the issue regarding vulnerable children who are forced to sell toys, flowers, etc., on the streets of Bengaluru and in particular, at traffic junctions. The court had vide order dated November 30, 2020 directed KSLSA to ensure that a meeting of all the stakeholders is convened for the purpose of evolving a scheme for identification of the children. KSLSA later constituted a Data Collection Team which submitted its report. The final report states that mapping work was done at altogether 432 hotspots in the city and 886 vulnerable children were mapped in the city of Bengaluru. Data was collected of 720 children. The data was collected through a mobile App, which was provided pro-bono by one youngster Abhishek Krishnan from Kochi, Kerala. The court noted “The results of the survey are shocking. 534 children were found involved in child beggary and 186 children were found to be involved in child hawking.” Suggestions made in the report: # A suggestion is made about the need to amend Section 74 of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015. Another suggestion is that Aadhar card of all vulnerable children must be prepared at the earliest. Reliance is also placed on record on an initiative taken by the Telangana State in the year 2018. The said Government has developed a face recognition tool called ”Darpan”. By using the data collected by visiting all the Child Care Institutes, it is possible to track the missing children. Accordingly the court directed the state to consider the suggestions, it said “This suggestion requires immediate consideration.” #Constitute Special Juvenile Police Units (for short ‘SJPUs’). The court said “There is no material placed on record to show that sub-sections (1) and (2) of Section 107 of the said Act of 2015 have been effectively complied with. There is nothing placed on record to show that Special Juvenile Police Units have been formed in each District and City. In the report, it is stated that even Child Welfare Police Officers as contemplated by sub-section (1) of Section 107 of the said Act of 2015 have not been appointed in any part of the State of Karnataka.” Accordingly it directed “The State Government shall file a compliance report regarding compliance with the provisions of sub-sections (1) and (2) of Section 107 of the said Act of 2015 on or before the next date. The State is under an obligation to implement the provisions of the said Act of 2015.” # Strengthening of Child Line 1098. The court said “The Child Line is run by one NGO. There are reports that the helpline is not effectively working. KSLSA has given several suggestions on the issue of strengthening the ChildLine-1098. We direct the State Government to look into the said suggestions and take a decision thereon before the next date.” #State Commission For Protection of Child Rights: The court directed the State Government to place on record the steps so far taken by the State Commission for protection of child rights on the next date in a sealed cover. The report has raised the issue about the failure to comply with Rule 91 of the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Model Rules, 2016 (for short ‘the Model Rules’). Section 109 of the said Act of 2015 provides for monitoring of the implementation of said Act of 2015 by the State Commission for Protection of Child Rights. #CWC Bengaluru Not functioning. On the suggestion made in the report for better functioning of the CWC in Bengaluru. The court referring to section 2 (14) of the JJ Act of 2015 and section 36 of the said Act said “The detailed procedure has been laid down in the Model Rules on this aspect. Rule 18 of the Model Rules deals with the production of a child before the Committee.” It added “These are the salutary provisions which are of immense importance. It appears that the same are not being followed at all. It will be appropriate if the State Government conducts training workshops for the benefit of the members of CWCs in a phase wise manner. The State Government can always take assistance from the Karnataka Judicial Academy for imparting training to the members of CWC. During the course of the training, emphasis will have to be laid on sensitizing the members of CWC.” The bench said it would on the next date hear the state government on the issue of providing infrastructure to the CWC in BBMP Area and at other places so that it can function more efficiently. #Unregistered Child Care Institutions: The court said “It is necessary for the State to initiate action in accordance with law against all the unregistered child care institutions. There are 56 unregistered child care institutions against whom action needs to be initiated. The State Government shall immediately initiate necessary action.” Finally the court said it would issue detailed directions on the issue about preventive measures. “The question is why so many children should be subjected to misery and agony in the city of Bengaluru and especially the child trafficking,” it said. The court has directed the state government to file a detailed affidavit reporting compliance in terms of directions/observations made in the order by May 25. The court has directed the Secretary of KSLSA to convene a meeting of all the stakeholders on the issue of taking action on the basis of the findings/recommendations in the reports submitted by KSLSA. The matter will be next heard on June 4.Click Hear To Download/Read OrderTagsKarnataka High Court Child Trafficking Cases Karnataka State Legal Services Authority (KSLSA) Karnataka Next Storylast_img read more

Police officer involved in Breonna Taylor’s death fired three months later

first_imgBreonna Taylor FamilyBy ROSA SANCHEZ, ABC News(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — One of the three police officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor has been terminated from the force.Brett Hankison was fired from the Louisville Metro Police Department on Tuesday, more than three months after Taylor’s death.Taylor, a 26-year-old African American emergency room technician, was killed by police on March 13 after the three officers used a “no-knock” warrant to enter her apartment around 12:40 a.m. as part of a drug investigation.Earlier this month, the Louisville, Kentucky Metro Council unanimously passed Breonna’s Law, which outlaws “no-knock” warrants and requires that police body cameras be turned on before and after every search.“Chief Schroeder is today initiating termination procedures against Louisville Metro police officer Brett Hankson,” Louisville, Kentucky, Mayor Greg Fischer said Tuesday.Hankison’s termination letter, written by Chief of Police Robert J. Schroeder and published by the police department on Twitter, states that he was fired after he “displayed an extreme indifference to the value of human life” by firing 10 shots upon entering Taylor’s home unannounced — putting her and her neighbors in danger, as some shots also entered a neighbor’s apartment.pic.twitter.com/E48Lx1DH73— LMPD (@LMPD) June 23, 2020In fatally shooting Taylor, Schroeder said Hankison violated the force’s Obedience to Rules and Regulations guidelines, as well as the Use of Deadly Force rules.“In fact the ten rounds you fired were into a patio door and window which were covered with material that completely prevented you from verifying any person as an immediate threat or more importantly any innocent persons present,” the letter states.Schroeder also noted that Hankison was previously disciplined, on Jan. 9, 2019, for “reckless conduct that injured an innocent person.”Fischer said neither he nor Schroeder can discuss the announcement any further due to a state law that says no public statements can be made concerning an alleged violation of departmental rules “until final disposition of charges.”“I find your conduct a shock to the conscience. I am alarmed and stunned you used deadly force in this fashion,” Fischer wrote in Hankison’s termination letter. “Your actions have brought discredit upon yourself and the Department.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
