Commissioner for Older People Act (Northern Ireland) 2011

Section 6 - Review of advocacy, complaint, inspection and whistle-blowing arrangements of relevant authorities in individual cases

This Section is similar to Section 5.  Whilst Section 5 enables the Commissioner to carry out general reviews of an organisation’s procedures as listed in Section 5(1), this particular Section gives the Commissioner the power to carry out such reviews whilst specifically looking at the effect of those procedures on a particular person or at a particular location.  Again the Commissioner must confirm the two points listed above at Section 5 before he/she can act.

Where an organisation does not have these procedures in place, the Commissioner can review what the effect of this is on a particular older person.
