The Children Act 1989: Putting it into Practice (Dartington Social Research)

The Children Act 1989: Putting it into Practice (Dartington Social Research)

by Mary Ryan (Author)

Synopsis

This updated edition reflects the changes in legislation and practice which have taken place since the book was first published in 1994. The Children's Act 1989 is important not just because it is such a comprehensive piece of legislation, but because it is also the end product of a substantial amount of debate about law and practice, and philosophy and principle. This book concentrates on those parts of the Children's Act 1989 that relate to the provision of services by local authorities to children and families, the powers and duties of local authorities in such circumstances, care and supervision proceedings, and child protection issues. There is also some consideration of the private law in so far as it relates to child care matters, and to the court system and the principles which govern it.
