Child Social Care

Child Supervision Order

What is a Child Supervision Order?

A Child Supervision Order allows the Local Authority to assist and befriend the parents of the child and support them in providing appropriate parenting for the child. This often applies to cases where the parents need extra support and guidance in raising their child.

Will the Local Authority have Parental Responsibility over my child?

Unlike a Care Order, a Child Supervision Order does not give the Local Authority Parental Responsibility. The role of the Local Authority is simply to guide you as a parent and support with the child’s upbringing.

How long does an Order last?

An Order can last up to three years. It depends on the individual circumstances of the case and how well the child progresses.

What do I need to do next?

If you are worried that this will happen to you and your child or it is happening to you then you must contact us immediately. We can act on your behalf, understanding your situation and working together with the Courts and the Local Authority to ensure the best outcome for you and your child.
