LEG 95 Children (Northern Ireland) Order 1995.pdf

The Children Order 1995 is the principal statute governing the care, upbringing and protection of children in Northern Ireland.  The Order reformed, and brought together, most of the public and private law relating to children in a single coherent statutory framework along the lines of the Children Act 1989 in England and Wales.

The Children Order has three levels.  At the top is the 'primary legislation', the Order itself.  In addition to the Order, there are Regulations.  These are called 'subordinate legislation'.  Regulations set out in detail how the law works in practice and have the full force of the law.  Lastly there is 'guidance' issued by the Department which do not have the force of the law but state how professionals such as social workers, should carry out their duties under the Order.
