Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill - Second Reading (7 Sep 2018)

Lord Adebowale: I rise to put forward my view on the Bill. Before doing so, I congratulate Steve Reed in the other place and the noble Baroness, Lady Massey, on bring the Bill forward. I agree entirely with the points made by the noble Baroness and the noble Lord, Lord Harris. I declare my interests as a board member of NHS England and the chief executive of Turning Point, which provides services to people...

Grenfell Tower - Statement (22 Jun 2017)

Lord Adebowale: Having listened to the Statement and the comments from the House, I cannot help thinking, as a former housing officer, that this dreadful tragedy is a terrible episode in a systemic failure. I recognise that the Government are making every effort to respond to the tragedy—albeit too late—but I wonder whether the Minister might respond to the systemic issues. There is evidence that a...

Disability: Premature Deaths - Question for Short Debate (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Adebowale: I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Hollins, for introducing the debate and I pay tribute to the inspirational late Lord Rix. I will share some observations on the healthcare experience of the people we support at Turning Point. I declare my interest as chief executive of that learning disabilities service provider, which for over 25 years has supported over 450 people with learning...

Policing and Crime Bill - Committee (1st Day) (14 Sep 2016)

Lord Adebowale: I support the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord Rosser. I have some experience of the police and their responses to mental health as chair of the commission on the Met’s response to mental health policing in London which—I hesitate to claim credit—lead to the concordat mentioned by the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee and the noble Lord, Lord Rosser. It is important that mental health...

Policing and Crime Bill - Committee (1st Day) (14 Sep 2016)

Lord Adebowale: I understand the point that the Minister is making but I wonder whether she might comment on this question: in areas where such concordats do not exist, are the Government willing to accept that those with mental health challenges will receive a poorer service? Do they accept that if you happen to live in an area where the voluntary agreements have not come together, you get a poor service?...

Black and Minority Ethnic People: Workplace Issues - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2016)

Lord Adebowale: I hesitate to interrupt the Minister in full flow, but Adebowale is a good old Yorkshire name, and pronounced differently from how the Minister said it.

Black and Minority Ethnic People: Workplace Issues - Motion to Take Note (3 May 2016)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to speak in this debate. I congratulate the Minister on calling the debate, and indeed the noble Baroness, Lady McGregor-Smith, on leading the review. I do not think that I have had the chance to welcome her to the House, so I say hello and welcome. I want to say a few things. As we all know, the UK is a diverse and multicultural society, despite the...

Housing and Planning Bill: Second Reading (26 Jan 2016)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, in contributing to this debate, first, I state that I am chief executive of Turning Point, a health and social care organisation supporting people with complex needs. In many cases this includes supporting some of the most vulnerable people in society to find suitable housing. Turning Point is also a registered social landlord. I am also chair of the London Fairness Commission,...

Trade Union Bill: Second Reading (11 Jan 2016)

Lord Adebowale: Right. Well, I have drawn the short straw in that I am the 23rd speaker on the list and I follow the noble Lord, Lord Bragg. To be honest, I think that I should sit down now. The noble Lord made a cracking speech. I have listened to some 20 informative and incredible speeches containing a lot of detail, knowledge and history. My contribution is a modest one. I thought about whether I should...

Prisons: Young People — Motion to Take Note (29 Oct 2015)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Harris, for bringing this important debate to the Chamber. I declare my interest as chief executive of Turning Point, a health and social care charity and social enterprise which works with people with complex needs—including mental health, substance misuse and learning disabilities—many of whom are young people. In a sense, we are the ambulance at...

People with Learning Disabilities — Question for Short Debate (12 Jun 2014)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, I declare my interests as chief executive of Turning Point, which provides health and social interventions for many people with learning disabilities, and as a non-executive member of NHS England. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Hollins, for tabling this debate nearly a year after the Government responded to the report of the Confidential Inquiry into Premature Deaths of People...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Second Reading (22 Oct 2013)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, to be honest I was going to home, because I am number 30 on the list and I have listened to all the speeches—well, most of them. I was going to stand up and declare my interest as the chief executive of a charity and a social enterprise and the chair of another charity, as well as my membership of many others, and then speak in favour of the Bill to provide some light relief. I...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Second Reading (22 Oct 2013)

Lord Adebowale: Spoken like a true democrat. The point is that the Bill is confusing. People cannot see the point of it. The NCVO, the Countryside Alliance and the National Trust are not organisations prone to hysterical statements about government policy; they are considered organisations that think very carefully about what they are going to say in support or in critique of government policy, and not one...

Mental and Physical Health: Parity of Esteem — Motion to Take Note (10 Oct 2013)

Lord Adebowale: I start by thanking the noble Lord, Lord Layard, and the noble Earl, Lord Howe, for bringing forward this debate on what is a vital issue not only for our health and social care systems but for society more widely. I should declare my interest as the chief executive of a health and social organisation called Turning Point, and I will draw on some cases that Turning Point has come across to...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (22 Jul 2013)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, I support Amendments 92B, 92C and 92D, which are also in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Pitkeathley, and the noble Lord, Lord Patel, who have spoken eloquently on this matter. I declare an interest as the chief executive of Turning Point, which provides health and social care to many young people in the process of transition. I know, as we all do, that transition can be a...

National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, I will be brief. I have sat through this debate patiently and I understand the impatience of the House to hear the Minister. I should declare my interest. I have listened to the debate very carefully as a non-executive director of NHS England, the chief executive of a not-for-profit provider of health and social care services in partnership with the NHS and as a board member of a...

Welfare Benefits Up-rating Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (11 Feb 2013)

Lord Adebowale: It is Adebowale, an old Yorkshire name meaning Adebowale.

Welfare Benefits Up-rating Bill: Second Reading (11 Feb 2013)

Lord Adebowale: My Lords, I declare my interest as chief executive of Turning Point, an organisation that works with many of the people who will be affected by this Bill, should it become an Act. I felt compelled to join in this debate because many of the people who stand to be affected are people with whom I and my organisation work; they are some of the most vulnerable in society. It is important that we...
