Caranuas human rights and discrimination abuse

Any survivor who was refused housing support because they live in private rented housing has been discriminated against, the bulk of the fund is spent on housing.

Caranuas payment process which only deals with service providers and refuses to pay the grant to survivors themselves, as they deem us not capable or not trustworthy to handle this ourselves is a breach of our human right to be treated like any other person in a fair and dignified manner, discriminates against us in treating us differently to other people and is playing fast and loose with our right to privacy under data protection laws. It also goes against the legislation itself.

It is a fact that survivors under the legislation are entitled to recieve grants to avail of medical treatment recommended by medical professionals, for a non medical person within caranua to override the advice of a medical professional and refuse a needed medical service is abuse of the highest order, and is damaging to the health and well being of the survivor who needs this medical help. there would be a public out cry if any other group had to suffer a fraction of what caranua is dishing out.

Hi Marylou im waiting on a review by them so fingers crossed they will take caranua to task, we should all put our names to it, once i hear back from them i will be posting here and would love for other survivors to be part of it because its not just me im fighting for i want survivors rights as a group wrote into law. So any ideas you have on putting a document together are most welcome,
