star this property answer text <p>Official statistics are not published on the average length of time from receipt of the application to the issue of a grant of probate. Internal management information, which is not subject to the rigorous quality assurance processes of official statistics, however shows that in the last financial year (2018/2019) the average time was three weeks.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst timeliness data are not yet available for the last three months, it is clear that waiting times have increased. Urgent action has been taken to address these temporary delays, staffing has been increased and the digital service further improved, and as a result waiting times are starting to reduce.</p><p> </p><p>There are no prescribed target times for dealing with probate applications. The recent increase in waiting times has been caused by a combination of an increased volume of incoming work and the transition to a new case management IT system. The move to the new system meant that staff had to spend time being trained and familiarising themselves with the system – which also had some initial performance issues that have been addressed.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is committed to protecting people with disabilities in the workplace and The Equality Act 2010 places obligations on employers with disabled employees, including the requirement to make reasonable adjustments, which may include granting leave related to the employee's disability.</p><p> </p><p>However, the Act recognises the need to strike a balance between the needs of disabled people and those of employers. What is ‘reasonable’ will be different for each employer because of factors such as the practicality and the cost of making the adjustment. A court or tribunal may ultimately make a final decision on whether a particular person meets the definition of disability in the Act and whether an adjustment request is reasonable.</p><p> </p><p>Practical advice on reasonable adjustments is available from a number of sources, including Acas and the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). The EHRC’s examples of reasonable adjustments for employers include disability leave.</p><p> </p><p>If a disabled person feels that they have not been treated fairly by an employer, the Equality Advisory Support Service (EASS) offers information and advice about discrimination, including disability discrimination. EASS can be contacted by telephone, via an online contact form or by post.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Professionals undertake a number of assessments on Children and Young People (CYP) when they enter the Youth Secure Estate in order to identify and review any vulnerabilities they have.</p><p> </p><p>The Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool (CHAT) provides screening and assessment for all CYP across the youth justice system, allowing for early identification of needs and requirements to support their care. An initial assessment is made before the first night in custody to assess any immediate needs or requirements, with a wide range of vulnerabilities and triggers screened for. This is followed by further physical and mental health assessments.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the Youth Custody Service use information provided by the Youth Offending Team to determine suitability for a particular placement into either a Secure Children’s Home, a Secure Training Centre or a Young Offender Institution. When making this determination a wide range of factors are considered, including, but not limited to, risk of harm to self and others, welfare, and medical history, including mental health.</p><p> </p><p>As well as this we are working closely with the NHS on ‘Secure Stairs’, an integrated approach to strengthen the provision of health care to address the needs of young people holistically and co-ordinates services through a coherent, joined up approach. This will ensure CYP receive a full needs assessment and a tailored care and support plan.</p>
