LEADING IN HOUSING, SUPPORT AND RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES

Challenging potentially unlawful decisions by public bodies 

- a seminar for service providers

London, April 14th 2016
9.30 - 15.30


Steve Broach, barrister at Monckton Chambers, will help providers understand how to address potentially unlawful decisions by public bodies in the context of the provision of services to disabled people.

The Seminar will cover:


The session will have particular focus on the legal duties imposed by the Care Act 2014. As well as looking at legal rights and obligations the session will focus on practical ways that decisions by public bodies can be challenged, including the role of judicial review.

The session will be interactive with plenty of time for questions and discussion. Attendees with specific questions are welcome to send them in advance to Steve at sbroach@monckton.com – as many questions as possible will be addressed during the session.

Steve will not be able to give case-specific advice on the day so questions should be phrased in general terms – Steve can be instructed separately to give case-specific advice if required.

Seminar Lead:



Steven Broach


Steve practices across the broad spectrum of public law. His practice has two main focal areas. Firstly, Steve has particular interest and expertise in the rights of children (in particular disabled children) and disabled adults and others in need of services and support. Steve acts mainly for individual claimants in judicial review claims and a wide range of parties in Court of Protection proceedings. He also advises and represents a number of NGOs and public bodies. Secondly, Steve regularly acts for professionals in appeals and challenges to regulatory decision-making, particularly police disclosure decisions in the context of Enhanced Criminal Records Certificates and barring decisions under the Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006.
