Jessica Purchase

Social Work England sought disclosure of a private law fact-finding judgment as part of its ongoing investigation into a father’s fitness to practise. Disclosure had been refused. The decision was appealed by the mother. SWE was invited to intervene and was represented by Jessica Purchase. The appeal was successful. Knowles J also gave some observations about the process to be observed in cases of disclosure to regulatory bodies.

The judgment is available here.
