Devoted parents had ultimately lost the care of this young man over a dispute about £10K charges for earlier care. A previous JR had led to a consent order with no MENTION of charges but the man’s mum was removed as deputy, and safeguarding proceedings were started. CASCAIDr advice was that s2 LGA negated the LA’s point that the Nat. Ass. Act positively REQUIRED a charge; the parents were able to disprove the allegation of impropriety – the CoP held the charges irrecoverable. Parents are now focused on getting their son’s services revised.
