Parents rights

As a parent, remember that in carrying out functions under the Children and Families Act 2014, Local Authorities must have regard for:

  • The views, wishes and feelings of the child, young person or parent
  • The importance of the child, young person or parent's full participation in decisions
  • The importance of the child, young person or parent being provided with the necessary information and support to participate
  • The need to support the child or young person to achieve the best educational or other outcomes.

 The above is a summary of section 19 of the Children and Families Act 2014
