Public Law can be defined as a series of long established rules and principles used to check and challenge the decisions and policies of public bodies.
Public Bodies include the Government, Government Agencies, Local Authorities (the public body responsible for providing public services, including care and support services, in your area), Police etc. those who perform key public functions.
All public bodies must act within their powers and in a fair and reasonable way when dealing with you, any problems you may have and your access to public services of any kind for which they are responsible.
These bodies must always act in accordance with public law principles to act fairly, reasonably and rationally when making decisions. Any failure by a public body to act in such a way when making that decision as to your rights and entitlements, can, and in our view should, be challenged; either by negotiation, argument, complaint or by Judicial Review proceedings.
