Community care

Community care, provided by local council social services, provides support to people with disabilities and other special needs so they are able to lead as independent a life as possible. Community care is available to all sorts of people and the level of support is determined following an ‘assessment of needs’.

However, there are times when the provision of this service does not run as smoothly as it should. Leigh Day lawyers have been instructed by many individuals who have found themselves in dispute with their local councils about both the level of community care offered, the quality of service offered or the failure to the provide the service at all.
