A Local Authority v MC and others

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. There could be little, if any, doubt that a care order and a care plan for a child, aged 14, with multiple disabilities, to remain with specialist foster carers was in his best interests, given evidence that the mother had inhibited his development and had exacerbated his condition. The Family Division further reduced the mother's contact, subject to his changing needs, best interests and physical health, to take place once every six months and not more than twice each year for a period of one hour on each occasion.
