Challenge to early intervention service and children’s centre spending cuts


Re: R (A & Ors) v Oxfordshire County Council [2016] EWHC 2419 (Admin)

Challenge to the decision of Oxfordshire County Council to further reduce spending on early intervention services for children and to the decision of Oxford’s Cabinet to approve a plan to cut funding in respect of children’s centres for 2017/2018. The claimants were children who had benefited from the existing centres. Permission for judicial review refused.

David Wolfe QC and Sarah Hannett were involved in this case.
