Also included is a special feature on cases involving former relevant children, and the latest updates on the government’s proposals to reform legal aid, judicial review, and even the public sector equality duty. Finally, we bring you case reports and comments on all other community care cases decided during the summer, including cases relating to age assessments, no recourse to public funds, s.117 (mental health aftercare), care home funding, and costs in cases where judicial review proceedings are settled before a final hearing.
