Challenges against decisions made by social services and NHS Trusts is one big area for us, but it’s by no means the only one.

More on Community Care Legal Services
Our specialist Community Care Solicitors have represented clients in all sorts of cases.
Some of the more common care issues that we’ve helped people deal with include:
- Assessment of Needs by Social Care and Health Services
- Care for the Elderly
- Lack of Access to Required Care and/or Accommodation
- Disputes Relating to the Level and Type of Service Required
- Inappropriate, Incorrect or Unfair Charges for Necessary Services
- Direct Payments or Personal Budgets
- Care Leavers’ Support
- Support for Military Families
Many community care issues require a formal complaint to be lodged before legal action can be taken.
However, anyone facing community care issues can still get legal advice before proceeding with a complaint, as the initial complaints process could be bypassed.
We can offer expert legal guidance at every stage, so you go through all the correct procedures at the right times.
Frequently asked questions
- What funding is available?
Get in touch with one of our team to find out if you’re eligible for Legal Aid. If you aren’t, we can advise you about our private funding arrangement, including fixed fees.
- Is there a time limit on taking legal action?
In many of the common community care cases that we deal with, there are time limits to claims, so action needs to be taken promptly.
If a legal challenge to a community care issue is appropriate, there’s normally a three-month deadline to lodge court proceedings.
