Question and answer
Q: Describe both direct and indirect discrimination that may occur in an adult social care setting
A: Age equality and age discrimination in social care 1.1 The principle of treating people equally, with dignity and respect, whatever their age, is fundamental to good practice in social work and social care. [ It underlies the policy emphasis in Putting People First (DH 2007) on personalising support and care, helping people of all ages to maintain their independence and control over their own
lives, and upholding their human and civil rights. It is reflected in specific initiatives for particular groups, including the Independent Living Strategy (ODI 2008), the National Carers Strategy (DH 2008), and the National Dementia Strategy (DH 2009). 1.2 The principles of age equality are not however always evident in social work and care practice, nor in the way priorities are set, decisions made, services structured and delivered, and resources allocated in adult social care. The Equality Act brings existing anti-discrimination legislation into a single statute, and also seeks to outlaw discrimination on grounds of age in the provision of goods and services, including social care and NHS services. 1.3 Age discrimination affects different individuals and groups in different ways. Some aspects of discrimination may apply to the whole population above retirement age. Some may be more marked amongst those more advanced in years, in their 80s and 90s, who experience higher levels of disability, long-term illness or mental health problems, and rely more heavily on social care and NHS support. Some groups within the older population, such as people living in residential settings, those in the more advanced stages of dementia, or older carers, may be more prone to experiencing discrimination. And people can be subject to dual or multiplediscrimination when the age factor is associated with disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion. - ]
