Grant cuts overturned?

We know nothing more about this case than is reported by Local Government Lawyer here, but it appears that a judicial review of London Councils decision to cut £10 million from its £24.6 million grant scheme to voluntary sector organisations in the capital was successful on Friday 26 January.

The Judicial Review was brought by two service users of affected voluntary organisations, apparently on the grounds that a proper assessment of gender, disability and race equality impacts was not carried out. The cuts would have affected more than 200 voluntary and community sector organisations in London, with tens of thousands of clients.

No transcript is available yet, hopefully it will be soon and we’ll update when we have it. Pierce Glynn acted for the service user claimants, any more details welcome…
