A looked after child is a child who is (a) in the care of a local authority, or (b) being provided with accommodation by a local authority in the exercise of their social services functions (see the definition in Section 22(1) of the Children Act 1989). A previously looked-after child is a child who was looked after but ceased to be so because they were adopted. This includes children adopted under the Adoption Act 1976 (see section 12 adoption orders) and children who were adopted under the Adoption and Children’s Act 2002 (see section 46 adoption orders). This also applies equally to children who immediately after being looked after by the Local Authority became subject to a child arrangements orspecial guardianship order.
