(D) v Worcestershire CC: Permission has been granted in this challenge to Worcestershire’s maximum expenditure policy for adult social care. Under the scheme, introduced by Worcestershire last November but currently on hold, service users whose support package exceeds Worcestershire’s limit, are told to either meet the shortfall themselves, find a cheaper means of support, or move to a residential or nursing home. The challenge was brought on the grounds of failure to consult and breach of public sector equalities duties.
