Re A and others (children) (care orders: care plans)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. None of the final care plans proposed by the local authority for five children could be approved. The Family Court held that, before they could be approved, it was important to know whether the present foster carers were willing to offer a long-term home either for the older four children or just for the eldest child and that before the plans to separate the older four children could be properly evaluated, there needed to be an expert assessment of the children by an appropriately experienced child psychologist.
