Branch guide to the community right to challenge
The Community Right to Challenge (‘the right’) came out of the Localism Act 2011 and is supplemented by statutory instruments. The purpose of the right is to open up public services to others such as ‘community organisations’. UNISON’s view is that the right is a Trojan horse for privatisation, eroding public services by the back door. It endangers in-house provision of services by removing a council’s ability control its own service provision. Any challenge by a community group represents the breakdown of the relationship between the local authority and the community it serves. Fixing that relationship requires alternative solutions.
