Regina (Nassery) v Brent London Borough Council [2011] EWCA Civ 539; [2011] WLR (D) 156 

“Where a local authority was assessing whether a person was ‘in need of care and attention’ for the purposes of section 21(1)(a) of the National Assistance Act 1948 the primary focus was on present rather than future needs, but provided there was a present need for some sort of care an authority was also empowered to intervene before it became much worse.”
