Salford CC v W and Ors [2021] EWHC 1689

Salford CC v W and Ors [2021] EWHC 1689

Gemma Taylor QC was instructed by Suffolk CC, intervening in the matter of Salford CC v W and Ors  [2021] EWHC 1689.

Macdonald J considered a freestanding application under the inherent jurisdiction  as to the legal status of children for a declaration that children were “looked after” when placed with relatives. The children had been Children in  Need when living in Suffolk and were placed with relatives in Salford without any involvement from them. The judge found that it could not be said that they appeared to require accommodation before they were placed.
