Please note: This document is under review.

The signatories need updating however the principles remain the same. If you have any questions about the Delegated Authority, please e-mail:

This document was added to the manual in December 2013. It outlines the policy for delegating authority to foster carers and residential workers caring for children that Leeds City Council is responsible. It seeks to maximise the delegation of authority for day to day decisions wherever possible to the primary carer for the child.
