Calling all Disabled people and DDPOs – join us for an “Independent Living Care Act” vigil outside the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL on Thursday the 17th of August at 9.15 am.
On the 17th of August the Court of Appeal will hear the case of Davey v Oxfordshire County Council. This is a first case under the Care Act to reach the Court of Appeal and it is vital because it will determine how far the flagship Care Act goes in promoting our wellbeing, choice and control and independent living.
Inclusion London intervened in this case and the court will consider our arguments. This is a first time a DDPO intervened in court proceedings before the Court of Appeal.
We want to make sure the judges understand how important this case is for many Disabled people. We invite as many of you as possible to show solidarity and support us by attending the vigil and the court of appeal hearing .
The vigil will take place on Thursday, the 17th of August, at the Royal Courts of Justice, strand, London WC2A 2LL
Starts at 9:15am.
The court hearing starts at 10:30.
