Under a Supervision Order, the Local Authority has a duty to befriend, advise and assist your child. This means social workers should make regular contact with your family and offer support and advice on resources. Supervision Order Reviews should also be held by the Local authority at least every three months.
Your ’supervised’ child may be required to report to a specific place on certain days, take part in specified activities or live in a place decided by the Local Authority.
Under a Supervision Order a ‘responsible person’, such as a parent with Parental Responsibility or anyone living with the child may have obligations imposed upon them with their consent. This person will be expected to give details of where the child is living and to allow reasonable contact between the child and the ‘supervisor’.
