Abstract

This chapter discusses the position of children in local authority care. It begins by considering the issue of contact with children in care. It then looks more broadly at local authorities' duties to all children looked after by them, which includes those who are accommodated as well as those who are subject to care orders. Finally, it describes the means by which local authority decisions with respect to children being looked after by them can be challenged.
