Eligibility and accessibility of community care, whether health or social care, has become more and more complex, particularly as demand has increased.

- Successfully challenging a decision to withdraw continuing healthcare funding forcing the individual to have to pay their own care fees.
- In the case of a severely injured young man, who had to settle his compensation claim for a proportion of its full value because of liability issues, we successfully challenged his social care package securing him an additional annual payment of £6,000.
