Welfare Checklist

The welfare checklist, set out in Section 1(4) of the Children and Young Persons Act 2001 contains the factors which the Court is required to consider when making a Section11 Order which is opposed, Care Order or Supervision Order.

The list is not intended to be comprehensive and is more of an aide-memoir to ensure that the basic elements of a child's welfare are considered.
