High Court Ruling ! Judicial review reverses decision

Hi all,

Please see this link to BBC news http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-13455068 Unison and the families of disabled people have won their case in a judicial review of adult care services cuts by Birmingham city council.

This has far reaching implications for all local authorities in England considering, or actually cutting, funding for services for people who are covered by the Disability Discrimination Act.

This is good news for our case as clearly the Judge’s ruling applies to the situation faced by the Crescent and our members. Unison have contacted both NHS Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire County Council indicating that they may need to review the decisions they have made to cut the funding.

We will keep you posted!

In addition a public demonstration is scheduled for the 20th and 22nd of June at County Hall, organised by Unison for the Crescent. If you would like to attend then please contact the Crescent and we will provide you with details.
