As at 30th March 2020.

In response to the emerging government guidance on Covid-19 restrictions and the avoidance of non-essential travel, the CCRC has taken the decision to close its office. This does not, however, mean that the CCRC has stopped working. Our switchboard on 0121 233 1473 will continue to collect and distribute voice messages wherever possible and emails can be sent to

Many of our staff are able to work effectively from home and we are making increased use of IT to allow meetings, such as casework decision making committees, to go ahead with those involved taking part remotely. In this way we are aiming to maintain our core casework function at a reasonable level for as long as we sensibly can.

The CCRC will continue to monitor the situation and we will use this space on our website to publish general updates about the status of the CCRC during the Covid-19 situation. Please bear with us in these difficult circumstances.
