Practice Guidance: Preparing for Care and Supervision Proceedings

The Ministry of Justice in co-operation with the Department for Children, Schools and Families, the Welsh Assembly Government and the Judiciary of England and Wales have issued a best practice guide, Preparing for Care and Supervision Proceedings, for all professionals involved in care proceedings. It has been extensively peer reviewed by professionals from the various fields of expertise including social work, legal, Cafcass/CAFCASS CYMRU, and HMCS.

The guide gives practical advice on the various stages that need to be undertaken pre-proceedings including meetings, assessments, joint working, and completion of documentation including a section 31 application. It gives examples of best practice, document templates, clarification on the roles of those involved, and directs readers towards more detailed guidance on specific issues. The guide is also intended to give those working in the field an idea of where they fit into the bigger picture and the role of others within the system.
