If you are, or you care for, one of the thousands of people nationwide who depend on accessing community care every day, losing that care can leave you feeling at risk and alone, unaware of your rights.
At Irwin Mitchell, our specialist community care solicitors have decades of experience tackling the legal issues that surround care services, including the changes to the law under the Care Act. We’ve successfully helped our clients seek justice for a range of legal problems, including:
Failure to carry out a community care assessment
Failure to provide a suitable level of care following an assessment
Withdrawal or reduction of a previous level of care
Closure of care facilities such as day centres, respite centres, care homes or transport services
We understand how sensitive some of the issues around community care can be, especially when you depend on those services in your everyday life. We want to put every client first, to get you the result you deserve and access to the care you need with minimal disruption to your everyday life.
We can assist or advise you in challenging a community care decision, whether you are a disabled person, or a carer or family member of a disabled child or adult, or an advocate working in the field of community care. We have also created a range of
factsheets and template letters to help you understand the law and to help you both understand the law under the Care Act 2014 and make requests to your council or local authority.
If you, a loved one, or someone you care for needs to challenge a community care decision then please get in touch. You can either call us on 0800 028 1943 or fill in our
contact form and we'll call you back.
