What Is The Purpose Of A Supervision Order?

Supervision orders are most commonly made when children are returned to their parent’s care at the end of care proceedings, or when a special guardianship order is made. It allows the local authority, who feels it is necessary to remain involved with the family for a period of time, to oversee the child’s care. Essentially, a supervision order imposes a duty on the local authority to advise, assist, and befriend the child.
