(Court of Appeal; Neuberger MR, Wilson and Toulson LJJ; 6 May 2011)

The local authority provided a young man with accommodation for about 7 months when he was 16/17.  The accommodation was provided by the housing services, but the authority conceded it probably should have been provided by the children's services under s 20 Children Act. The young man was guilty of repeated criminal behaviour.

The lack of coordination between the youth offending team, housing and children's services of the local authority had been positively unlawful. The appellant should have been accommodated under s20 Children Act and in the circumstances the actions of the youth offending team were properly to be imputed to children's services. The young man was declared a ‘former relevant child' but no damages were awarded.
