Duty to house

Thanks to the Nearly Legal blog for this post on a recent case in which the Court of Appeal considered the local authority's duties in respect of accommodation under s 20 . Apparently there is a valid distinction in the service that must be offered if the local authority decides that a child needs help with accommodation as opposed to requires accommodation. Nearly Legal is more convinced by the dissenting judgment.

The full text of the judgment is now available on the main Family Law Week site
