star this property answer text <p>We recognise that it is important that the fundamental rights of people continue to be respected throughout their lives and that the specific needs of older people are recognised and respected.</p><p> </p><p>We have previously considered the merits of introducing an older person’s commissioner. However, we believe that the duties that would be covered by such a role are covered by work elsewhere in the system.</p><p> </p><p>Establishing an older person’s commissioners would also have significant costs associated with it. Net expenditure in the first year that Northern Ireland’s Older People’s Commissioner was set up was around £101,674 in 2011-12 and has since increased to £876,272 in 2017-18. Recent estimates indicate that there are around 33% more over 65s in England than in Northern Ireland, suggesting such a body would create significant annual costs.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is committed to making this country one of the best places to grow old in.</p><p>Across the health and social care system in England there are already systems in place, that are able to listen to the voices of older people and respond to their concerns.</p><p> </p>

The Green Paper aims to improve the provision of mental health support through its three key proposals:</p><p>- incentivising every school or college to identify and train a Senior Lead for Mental Health;</p><p>- creating new Mental Health Support Teams in and near schools and colleges; and</p><p>- piloting a four-week waiting time for specialist National Health Service services, so that there is swifter access to specialist NHS services for those children and young people who need it.</p><p> </p><p>These three proposals are currently being trialled in new trailblazer areas.</p><p> </p><p>The above-mentioned Mental Health Support Teams form part of the NHS’s commitment in the NHS Long Term Plan to ensure that by 2023/24, at least an additional 345,000 children and young people aged 0-25, including young carers, will be able to access support via NHS-funded mental health services and school– or college-based mental health support teams.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
