CARE/CONTACT: R (J) v Caerphilly County Borough Council [2005] EWHC 586 (Admin)

21 APR 2005

(12 April 2005; Munby J; [2005] The Times April 21, Queens Bench Division)[2005] 2 FLR 860

While there was nothing in Children Act 1989 which made it either unlawful or necessarily undesirable to appoint an officer or employee of the local authority as the personal adviser of a child in care, it was not part of the personal adviser's functions to undertake the statutory assessment or the preparation of the pathway plan, nor was it desirable, as his vital role and function were apt to be compromised if he was at one and the same time both the author of the local authority's pathway plan and the person charged with important duties owed to the child in respect of the plan's preparation and implementation.
