We provide expert advice and representation for people with disabilities – both mental and physical – people who are amongst the most marginalised in society.
“Legal problems experienced by disabled people can include discrimination at work or in accessing goods and services, benefits, problems accessing community care support from Social Services, and similar issues.”
Parents of disabled children, and people who care for disabled adults, may be entitled to help themselves, but they may not always be aware of their rights.
Swain & Co. have the expertise needed to help disabled people navigate their way through disability law. We can help with problems including:
- Social Services Assessments
- Mental Capacity and Deprivations of Liberty
- Disabled Children and the Children Act
- Adaptations to the home
- Care of elderly and disabled persons
- Residential care and care home fees
- Non-residential care and support
- NHS care and support
- Benefits and Grants
- Funding of Care
- Mental Health Problem
Our specialists in disability law can advise on all the relevant disability law legislation, such as the National Assistance Act, the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act, the Equality Act and the Human Rights Act.
We offer legal aid for all our disability law work – subject to means assessment – and we can discuss other methods of funding on request.
