Over the course of the last decade, there has been a promulgation of claims for judicial review of decisions taken under Part III, Children Act 1989 (entitled ‘Local Authority Support for Children and Families’).
This legislative framework has considerable relevance both as an area of law in its own right, but also increasingly, to practitioners in the field of child law.
The Children Act 1989: Local Authority Support for Children and Families is dedicated to providing a detailed examination of this legislation. It helps you understand this rapidly-growing area, and includes chapters on Section 20 accommodation, age assessments of unaccompanied asylum-seekers, duties owed to children in need, secure accommodation and local authority responsibilities under the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000.
The book also covers all the recent key decisions of the Administrative Court in the interpretation of Part III, and the amendments to the legislation following the Children and Young Persons Act 2008 and the Care Planning, Placement and Case Review Regulations 2010.
