There is always a duty on local authorities to try and keep children within their family. The special guardianship provisions were introduced by the Adoption and Children Act 2002 with the aim of placing a child with a non-parent with a degree of permanence which is greater than a child arrangements order but is less immutable than a full adoption order.

Members of our Public Law Children Team have considerable experience of applying for Special Guardianship Orders as stand-alone orders or during care proceedings.
