Re RP (A Child) (Foster Carers Appeal) [2019] EWCA Civ 525

Deirdre Fottrell QC and Tom Wilson appeared on behalf of a child’s non-party foster carer in a successful appeal against the making of a final care order. The trial judge rejected the local authority’s care plan for adoption, and ordered that the child be placed in foster care in Poland. The Court of Appeal quashed this decision and remitted the matter for a re-hearing. Baker LJ expressed concern about the approach of the Children’s Guardian.

Deirdre and Tom were instructed by Jemma Dally at Goodman Ray.
