“Independent Living Care Act” vigil 17 August

Calling all Disabled people and DDPOs – join the “Independent Living Care Act” vigil outside the Royal Courts of Justice, Strand, London WC2A 2LL on Thursday the 17th of August at 9.15am.

On the 17th of August 2017 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 disabled people’s wellbeing, choice and control and independent living.

Inclusion London intervened in this case and the court will consider their arguments.  This is a first time a DDPO intervened in court proceedings before the Court of Appeal.

Inclusion London want to make sure the judges understand how important this case is for many Disabled people. This is an invite so as many of you as possible show solidarity and support us by attending the vigil and the court of appeal hearing.

Vigil
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 10:30am.

If you are able to come, please let us know by emailing Svetlana Kotova at
