1.4.8 Appeals

Contents

  1. Care Orders
  2. Supervision Orders
  3. Procedure for Appeal by Local Authority


1. Care Orders

If the Court refuses to make a Care Order, the local authority may decide to appeal that decision. In both cases where an Interim Court Order is in place and in cases where the Court has ordered that a Care Order be discharged, if an appeal is made the Court has the power to make or continue the Care Order until the appeal is heard (refer to the procedures on Care and Supervision Orders).


2. Supervision Orders

Where an Interim Supervision Order or a Supervision Order is in force and the Court intends to dismiss or discharge that Order and the intention by local authority is to appeal, the Court may make or continue the Supervision order until the appeal is heard (refer to the procedures on Care and Supervision Orders).


3. Procedure for Appeal by Local Authority

Discussion must take place with the Social Worker, Designated Manager (Children’s Social Care). and Legal Service to determine whether or not the local authority can appeal against a decision not to confirm or to discharge the Order. 

If it is decided to appeal the Legal Service will make the application.

In circumstances where such a decision is not to be appealed, the Designated Manager (Children’s Social Care) will ensure that the case is reviewed and that all legislative requirements are carried out.
