Welsh Government climb down in residential education funding battle for disabled youngster


In one of many cases being handled by the Doughty Street education team, the Welsh government have finally capitulated in a long running dispute over the need for a bright wheelchair user to attend a specialist residential college in Bridgend, South Wales.  Cardiff Council and then Careers Wales /  the Welsh Government had insisted that she should attend a busy mainstream FE College that the parents insisted would be wholly inappropriate for her educational and social needs. 


Nicholas Bowen QC and Michael Imperato of Watkins & Gunn acted for the family.
