NW ADASS Legal Training
26 May 2017, 10am – 12 noon, Friend’s Meeting House, Central Manchester
The recent Davey vs Oxfordshire County Council ruling has important implications for local authorities (briefing available here). http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWHC/Admin/2017/354.html.
We are extremely pleased to announce that we have secured Jonathan Auburn of 11kbw to lead a training session. This is an excellent opportunity for Adult Social Care in the NW as Jonathan was the barrister on this case on behalf of the defendant (Oxfordshire).
We’re hoping this will a useful session to help ensure that local authorities understand risks about whether they compliant with the law.
We recommend each local authority sends their Principle Social Worker, Head of SW Assessment Team and ASC Legal lead and whichever other colleagues you feel would benefit from attending. We can accommodate additional places and so please circulate locally.
