With the end almost in sight for lockdown measures, it is hoped the difficulties encountered in the past year will soon become a distant memory, although the damage it has caused for vulnerable individuals and families may not be such an easy fix.
Local Authorities and their social workers have understandably been overwhelmed with not just the workload, but the pressures of operating during variable lockdown conditions and intermittent freedom to perform their crucial everyday duties.
This briefing note will look at:
- The difficulties faced by local authorities and their social care teams during the coronavirus pandemic.
- How these difficulties may translate into legal challenges for local authorities for years to come.
- Our suggested actions that local authorities can take to minimise the risk of future legal claims.
