More reasons could be the child has significant health problems such as behavioural issues which make the child/young person hard to cope with meaning that the parent/s may ask for respite which is sort of like a brake its short term care for a week or so, another example would be if the child/young person has commited a criminal offence in which case will be separated from the parents and put into a juvinile center or detention center etc.
But it does not always result in an court order some parents give their consent that their child should/needs to be looked after by someone other than them.
If children do need to be removed then a court order is given which means that there is a legal agreement for that person to do or not to do something in this case if a child has to be removed from the parents a court order will be given as a legal direction issued by the court so that there is legal evidence that the child had to be taken from the family and looked after by someone else.
Another reason for a child to be taken away from the family is if the parent is suspected to have neglected or abused the child/younger person then that individual will be taken away from their parents and put into a more suitable environment such as living with someone else , If the parent/s have mental health issues then the child or young person can be taken away from them if that mental illness is effecting the daily life of the child/parent if the child has mental health issues and the parent is struggling to cope with the child/younger person then that could also result in the child being removed either for a short term or a long term period.
Why would a child or a younger person be removed from their family?
There are a number of reasons that may cause a child/young person to be looked after by someone else rather than their family for example:
The parent could be ill or even in hospital which could result in the parent/s being unable to look after their child which could result in another family member looking after the child as the parent is unable to look after the child due to undergoing treatment or being in hospital most of the time. Another example could be if the parents are deceased meaning that they may have to go to another family member or into another form of care.
Removing the child from the family is the last resort unless unless that child/young person is at risk in the family home however if there are no concerns/risks yet the family want the child to be removed then the family should be given the most support possible from key workers provide a vital role in these services, they provide the service users with informartion as well as informing other work collegues about vital information on the family and child in order to provide the best possible support. However if even after all of this support the child still is requested/needs to be removed then there are places that the child can go to wether it is temporary or perminant there are places that children and young people can go to.
Residential care refers to organisations such as Rhyd y gors, places such as Rhyd y gors take young people and children in for a number of reasons for example emergency reasons such as the child is being abused at home or the child may have severe behavioural difficulties or even in some cases to distance children from bad role modles or even to make sure that the children are attending school.
