Civil » Community Care

When it seems that no-one cares, remember that we do.

When you consider that community or social care is there to help the most vulnerable members of society – the sick, the elderly, the disabled, the young or the homeless – it’s frustrating that the system can make it so difficult for people to get the care and support they are entitled to. Professional legal advice may not be able to change the system, but it can start making it work for you.

Howells has a long and proud tradition of social justice, protecting and exercising the rights of those entitled to state help. It’s not just about ensuring that the state meets its statutory obligations – it’s about enabling you to live as rich and as independent a life as you can, and giving you an enduring safety net of proper community care.
