Summary

First published in 1999, this book provides a practical guide to those parts of the Children Act 1989 that relate to the provision of services by local authorities to children and families, dealing in particular with the powers and duties of local authorities in such circumstances, care and supervision proceedings and child protection issues. It combines a discussion of the legal framework of the Act and the regulations and guidance with information about good social work and legal practice, relevant research and recent case law. It is grounded on the author’s practical experience of providing an advice and advocacy service for families and training for social workers, lawyers and other child care professionals.
