Care Order Applications on the Rise



Michael Batty considers recent figures showing that the number of Care Order Applications are on the rise.

The latest CAFCASS figures (published in August 2015) show a 9% increase in Care Proceedings issued by Local Authorities in July 2015, compared to those issued in July 2014.
