Birmingham Council social care cuts ruled unlawful by High Court
Birmingham Social Services is facing a fresh funding crisis after a High Court judge ruled a controversial cost-cutting plan to be unlawful.
Mr Justice Walker found that city council leaders ignored provisions in the Disability Discrimination Act when they decided to stop providing care packages for about 4,000 adults whose needs are assessed as being substantial.
His interim judgment blows a hole in the council’s budget, since the local authority had been expecting to save £17.5 million this year by restricting social care packages only to clients whose needs are critical.

for Birmingham Council social care cuts ruled unlawful by High Court
Today people don’t get social care. The social care is cut. People turn to Britain Loan for taking financial help. If the government would give people social care the people debts’ wouldn’t be so huge. Our government is guilty that people are always in debts. More social care is, less debts are.
