Supervision orders, new cases

The number of young people (aged 0-17 years) placed under a supervision order in the year concerned.

A supervision order restricts parental authority. The child's parents receive help and support from a family guardian of the youth welfare services, or a national institution for (family) guardianship. The child may either continue to live with its parents, or may be moved to foster care or a home, but the parents retain parental authority. They are obliged to carry out the instructions of the family guardian.
