DHP human rights case approved

27 January 2014

Irwin Mitchell’s specialist Public Law team has been granted permission to bring a judicial review into Sandwell local authority’s decision to take Disability Living Allowance (DLA) into account when assessing whether people should also receive Discretionary Housing Payments (DHP).

Irwin Mitchell’s argument is that the council’s policy amounts to disability discrimination and a breach of British human rights law. The case is thought to affect hundreds of disabled people around the country.
