The Community care department provides advice and representation for both people who need services themselves and their carers, in the following areas:-
- Failure to carry out a community care assessment or to provide adequate care needs following an assessment.
- Withdrawal and reduction of community care services.
- Provision of after care services for those with mental health problems.
- Charging for health and community care services.
- Closure of hospitals, care homes and day centres
- Decision making for patients lacking capacity.
Free legal advice is available in some court proceedings and we will always advise you as to your eligibility for legal aid.
