Version 3 of this guidance note (Mar 2019) can be found here. Since this document was published the Public Law Working Party have published some guidance about the use of s20 (and the equivalent in Wales – s76). In broad terms the Working Party encourages the use of s20 / s76 as appropriate ways to meet the needs of children without coming to court. We will be updating this note in due course. For the Working Party guidance, see the 4th attachment on this page, and the document labelled Appendix G3 near the bottom.
