Welcome to Albin and Co Solicitors, specialising in
How we can help
Section 117 of the Mental Health Act provides for certain people to receive free aftercare services and support in the community on discharge. Our team is robust in ensuring that proper aftercare services are in place to allow clients to be discharged into the community as soon and as successfully as possible.
Our Solicitors are able to advise and challenge decisions made by Local Authorities and Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) under this provision, including charging residents for accommodation inappropriately.
This work can be provided under the Legal Aid scheme, subject to availability.
