How we can help with Disability and Health Matters
Independent Social Work reports provide impartial expert witness evidence that can be used in a range of legal disputes relating to health and disability matters. We complete independent assessments of disability related needs and our reports can be used to promote and uphold rights to access support and services, where relevant support has been refused or denied.
Independent Social Work Reports
Our Independent Social Work Reports are holistic and consider disability related needs for children, adults and older people, whilst exploring informal carers needs. We make recommendations in terms of how presenting needs can be met in the best interests of the client.
Our assessments and reports are comprehensive, evidence based and completed to standards for use as expert witness evidence in legal proceedings.
We consider the relevant laws and current case law in relation to children, adults and older people within our assessments.
