(Family Division; Sumner J; 23 May 2007)

At a fact finding hearing in care proceedings the judge found that the mother had assaulted the 8-year-old child, causing marks and bruises. The mother was employed in a residential home for elderly people. The local authority applied for an order allowing them to disclose the findings to the mother's employer, or the local authority in which she worked.

There were many factors connecting the care of children with the care of vulnerable adults; both were likely to be dependent upon their carer for their physical, psychological and emotional support. The public interest in disclosure was a strong and potent force when all the other considerations were balanced, enhanced not only by the existence of a statutory duty on local authorities to share such information but also by a clearly established procedure on managing the receipt of such information.
