Many people will be delighted to read of Rochdale Council’s Cabinet decision to remove the highly controversial Supported Living Group Homes proposals from the Council’s savings programme.

Woman with learning disabilities sought a Judicial Review of Council’s Supported Living Consultation, with Mathieu Culverhouse, a public law expert at Irwin Mitchell, saying: “This is a victory for all those who would have been unfairly affected by the changes that Rochdale Council was proposing.

“The families of those affected are happy that the Council has withdrawn its proposals and has confirmed that before proceeding with any such proposals in future it will engage with those affected and ensure that they are given a full and fair picture of what the proposals will mean for them in practice.”
