What is a Supervision Order?

A Supervision Order is an Order which places a child under the supervision of a designated Local Authority and places the appointed supervisor under a duty to advise, assist and befriend the supervised child and take such steps as are reasonably necessary to give effect to the Order. A Supervision Order can last for a period for up to one year. The supervisor may apply to extend the Order to the maximum of three years from the date on which the original Supervision Order was made.
