Accommodating children under section 20—best practice
Practice notes

This Practice Note provides local authorities with best practice guidance on accommodating children pursuant to a voluntary agreement under section 20 of the Children Act 1989 (ChA 1989). It covers the requirements of the section 20 arrangement and the need to avoid drift and delay in making decisions about the child’s long-term care. It also discusses whether claims for damages under the Human Rights Act 1998 on the basis of a breach of article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights are sustainable.
