Clements, Luke 2010. Carers and the Equality Bill. Discrimination Law Association Briefings 39 (1) , pp. 3-8.

The paper commences by considering the wider policy context in which these reforms will rest. It is a policy context containing a number of countervailing challenges: a context where an undue focus on the Equality Bill’s reforms risks obscuring more pressing and present changes that could undermine the rights of carers to equal treatment. The paper briefly considers the scope for combining some of the new obligations on public bodies, created by the Bill, with other existing functions – for example the obligation to gather information for the Outcomes and Performance Characteristics framework and Equality Impact Assessments as part of a council’s auditing and inspection responsibilities in relation to the Care Quality Commission. The paper concludes by arguing that policy developments that may impact on carers, need to be evaluated before they become established.
