Local authority service provision in Wales through the COVID-19 crisis live webinar with Jonathan Auburn & Joanne Clement

02/04/2020 | 10:00 am 11:00 am

Jonathan Auburn and Joanne Clement are experienced barristers at 11KBW specialising in local authority (LA) service provision, particularly in adult social care, mental capacity, mental health and LA governance. They have examined the Coronavirus Bill in detail as it progressed through Parliament, and have advised on its operation on the main areas of LA service provision.

Due to exceptional demand, we have now decided to run a distinct seminar for those practising in Wales. This seminar will focus on the changes made by the Act to Welsh legislation and its impact on Welsh local authorities.


COVID-19 and social care:

  • effect of the Act on LA social care: assessments, planning, provision
  • the new threshold for delivery
  • NHS cooperation; LAs assisting hospitals to release bed space
  • assessment and delivery of social care without contact
  • DOLS: assessments and authorisations

COVID-19 and education, SEN:

  • effect of the Act & Welsh Ministers guidance on education provision
  • “key workers” – scope of provision, LA / school decision-making
  • mainstream & SEN: school closures and education off-site
  • SEN: when it is not possible to deliver EHC plan provision

COVID-19 and LA governance:

  • new rules for conduct of meetings
  • LA continued funding of suppliers
