Product description

Why should you buy The Children Act 1989: Local Authority Support for Children and Families

 

The Children Act 1989: Local Authority Support for Children and Families is dedicated to providing a detailed examination of the Children Act 1989, Part III.

This new edition is fully updated and expanded to take account of new legislation and case law. It helps readers 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 new edition contains two new chapters, on support for families with no recourse to public funds and on judicial review. The book also covers all the recent key decisions of the Administrative Court in the interpretation of Part III.

 

"practitioners specializing in children law, or anyone working within a local authority, non-government organisation, or charity dealing with vulnerable children and families should consider this informative and helpful book an essential purchase" Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, Richmond Green Chambers

"a one line review would simply say that this is a useful and clearly written book ... the book helpfully highlights the areas where the law remains unclear and analyses the competing arguments in those situations ... it is a useful addition to the family practitioner’s library" Julia Belyavin, Barrister, St John's Chambers
