CARE PROCEEDINGS: Re P [2007] EWHC 1651 (Fam)

(Family Division; Hogg J; 17 May 2007)

The maternal grandmother appealed against a care order made in the family proceedings court. The order had been made because, among other things, there was evidence that the grandmother had facilitated unsupervised contact between the mother and the children, contrary to a court order. There was also doubt, supported by expert evidence, over the grandmother's ability to provide for the emotional needs of the children. Psychotherapy, which had been recommended for the grandmother, would not deliver results quickly enough for the children. There was ample evidence that the family proceedings court was justified in reaching its conclusion. The appeal would be dismissed.
