Community Care;5/14/2009, Issue 1770, p6
The article reports that the Fairer Fee Forum (FFF) to raise care fees is threatening the first judicial review against all English councils. The FFF has been established to put pressure on councils to ensure fees meet the costs of providing adult care services, amid longstanding claims from providers and independent evidence that they fall well short. FFF is also designed to help providers challenge fee levels without identifying themselves and jeopardising relations with councils.
