Disability Rights UK Article on illegality of Capping Personal Budgets Care Funding

Disability Rights UK have an article on their web site about a ruling that it was illegal to cap a disabled man’s personal budget to the level of the costs of residential care as it was not person-centred and did not meet his needs appropriately. There was also a failure to asses his needs properly, as Sefton, the local authority involved, claimed that he no longer needed 2;1 support.
