This is a report on the findings from a survey into the use of supervision orders in care proceedings. The focus of the survey was on standalone supervision orders made in relation to children who had returned home at the end of care proceedings or who had stayed at home or been returned during proceedings. The survey ran for three weeks from 15 February to 8 March 2021. Responses to the survey came from a range of legal and children’s social care professionals, as well as parents. The report will contribute to the current review of supervision orders being carried out by a sub-group of the President of the Family Division’s Public Law Working Group.
