Disabled man loses ‘Care Act breach’ Case in High Court

Disabled man loses ‘Care Act breach’ Case in High Court

A severely disabled man has lost a High Court challenge over cuts to his care package he claimed breached the Care Act.

Luke Davey, 40, brought a judicial review on the grounds Oxfordshire council’s decision to reduce his weekly personal budget by 42% was unlawful as it posed a direct risk to his wellbeing.

Justice Morris dismissed the case, saying it was understandable Davey and his family had objected to the cut but there was no “relevant legal error” in the council’s actions.

The Disability Justice Project has also produced a briefing on the judgement.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.
