Parent’s Pack – information for parents about care proceedings

This is a booklet published by the Ministry of Justice for parents who may be about to be taken to court by a local authority because of concerns over the safety and welfare of their child. It gives parents information in a clear and straightforward manner about what is involved in court proceedings and the various stages in the process. It is intended that parents should receive this information from local authorities at the stage at which a Letter before Proceedings is issued.

It is expected that a shorter version will be published in early 2011
