FOI Request - Court Orders for Contact
This is to ask for the procedures that are in place
1. to ensure that COURT ORDERS for CONTACT with children in care are being complied with;
2. to allow parents to enforce orders for contact when they are not being adhered to;
3. to ensure that embassies and consulates are being informed when non-UK children are taken into care;
4. to arrange for Consular visits of non-UK children in care.
We do not have policies in place for any of the above. This information is not held and is therefore exempt under Section 17 of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002.
New guidance is due to be issued in the future (nationally) on how to manage these situations.
