Situations where fresh grants of advice and assistance are required for the same client in proceedings under the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011

It is important to know when the advice and assistance grant comes to an end and when another one is required for proceedings under the 2011 Act. A child can be subject to a Compulsory Supervision Order for many years and one grant of advice and assistance to advise for all those years is not appropriate.

In general, if you are not providing ABWOR and you have not provided advice and assistance to your client for over a year then you should admit your client to advice and assistance again rather than seeking an increase.
