A LA v W v W

10 February 2020

Asha represented the father assisted by his intermediary in this final hearing in care proceedings. She submitted that in the interests of fairness and the need to consider parenting with adequate support, the father’s needs and abilities should have been assessed earlier in the process. The judgement was written in a plain English format for her client to understand and criticisms were made of the local authority not following best practice for adults with learning disabilities in line with Asha’s submissions.
