The survey received a total of 301 responses from a range of legal and children’s social care professionals, as well as parents. According to NFJO, majority of the respondents are in favour of keeping supervision orders, but many of the respondents made it clear that the orders could be made 'more effective and robust'. The report includes suggestions for changes to improve the effectiveness of supervision orders which will contribute to the existing review of supervision orders being carried out by a sub-group of the President of the Family Division’s Public Law Working Group.
