The Care Planning and Care Leavers (Amendment) Regulations 2014 (SI 2014/1917)
The Care Planning and Care Leavers (Amendment) Regulations 2014 were published on 22 July 2014.

These Regulations amend the Care Planning, Placement and Case Review (England) Regulations 2010 (“the CPPCRR”), which make provision about care planning for children who are looked after by a local authority, and the Care Leavers (England) Regulations 2010 (“the CLR”), which make provision about support to be provided to certain children and young people who are no longer looked after by a local authority.

Regulation 5 of the CPPCRR is amended to require that a child’s care plan must record whether the child is a victim, or there is reason to believe they may be a victim, of trafficking in human beings or is an unaccompanied asylum seeking child and has applied or intends to apply for asylum (regulation 3).

Regulation 42(2) of the CPPCRR is amended to require that the local authority’s assessment of a relevant child’s needs must include the child’s needs related to their status as a victim of trafficking or an unaccompanied asylum seeking child (regulation 4).

Schedule 7 of the CPPCRR is amended to require that, when a local authority is reviewing a child’s case it must consider the child’s status as a victim of trafficking or an unaccompanied asylum seeking child and whether their related needs are being met (regulation 5).

Regulation 5 of the CLR is amended to require that the care leaver’s needs in relation to their status as a victim of trafficking or an unaccompanied asylum seeking child must be considered when the local authority is preparing an assessment of needs (regulation 7).

Schedule 1 of the CLR is amended to require that, where a child is a victim of trafficking or an unaccompanied asylum seeking child the local authority must consider whether their related needs are being met when reviewing the child’s pathway plan (regulation 8).

A full regulatory impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sectors is foreseen.
