Dr Charlotte Proudman represents victim of domestic abuse in High Court appeal seeking for findings to be disclosed to the perpetrator’s regulatory body (Social Work England)


Dr Charlotte Proudman was instructed by direct access on behalf of a lawyer who is a victim of domestic abuse:

Judge Farooq Ahmed made findings following a private hearing that the social worker had used his temper to ‘frighten and control’, was ’emotionally abusive’, behaved in a way that ‘amounted to gaslighting’ and hit the family dog in front of the couple’s child. But he refused to disclose a copy of his judgment to Social Work England after it made an application to the court following an anonymous referral.

Dr Proudman appealed the decision on behalf of the victim saying that the Judgment should be disclosed to Social Work England, the perpetrator’s regulatory body which would allow them to risk assess the father who works with vulnerable people.

The appeal decision is awaited.
