How can Judicial Review help my clients?

An increasing number of welfare rights decisions and actions are not open to appeal and are likely to be issues your clients face regularly. For example:

  • Inappropriate Universal Credit conditionality
  • Refusal of a Discretionary Housing Payment
  • Refusal of a Local Support Scheme grant or loan
  • Refusal of a Universal Credit Budgeting Advance
  • Delays in providing Mandatory Reconsideration decisions
  • Delays in making Right to Reside decisions
  • Refusal to extend the time limit for making a mandatory reconsideration request
  • The decision to recover an overpayment of benefit
  • Refusal to pay UC without a National Insurance Number
  • And more…

Judicial Review can be a way of challenging these otherwise unchallengeable decisions!
