Rachel Crasnow QC & Rachel Barrett appear in an important case concerning foster carers’ human rights

Cloisters barristers appear in an important case on foster carers’ human rights being heard in the Court of Appeal this week, NUPFC v Certification Officer. Rachel Crasnow QC, Doughty Street’s David Stephenson, and Rachel Barrett represent the NUPFC, which seeks to be listed as a Trade Union to represent foster carers. The case concerns whether foster carers should be treated as workers for the purposes of being able to list a trade union to represent their interests.
