  • RESIDENTIAL CARE Residential child care prior to 1950 Prior to 1947 the care of children was governed by the Poor Relief Acts which empowered Boards of Guardians to care for children in workhouses or to have them boarded-out (fostered). The functions of the Boards of Guardians in relation to children transferred to the newly established welfare authorities on 1 November 1947. At that time the Ministry of Home Affairs recommended that the 8 welfare authorities established under the Public Health and Local Government (Administrative Provisions) Act (Northern Ireland) 1946, established homes to provide for persons in need, including children. Almost 80 per cent of children in care lived in institutional placements (Table 6).

  • This is the third Children’s Services Plan developed by the Western Area Children and Young People's Committee. It sets out the main issues affecting children and young people regarded as vulnerable or in need and the key result areas which the Plan seeks to address. The planning process has drawn together a wide range of knowledge, skill and expertise from the voluntary, community and statutory sectors, and has gained from increasing consultation with children, young people and their parents about what makes a difference to them. The Children and Young People’s Committees across the four Health Board areas in Northern Ireland have collaborated in addressing key policy issues that have arisen in relation to children. Common approaches to information-gathering have been designed to support the development of better inter-agency planning and delivery. The four Committees have embraced the outcomes-based approach and have developed a series of outcome statements, describing the life we would like for all children in Northern Ireland. Further discussion is being undertaken with Government Departments in an effort to include an outcomes approach in the development of strategies for children.

  • Commission on Families and the Wellbeing of Children Executive Summary Families and the State Two-way support and responsibilities An inquiry into the relationship between the state and the family in the upbringing of children The Commission on Families and the Wellbeing of Children (the Commission) was established in April 2004 to consider the relationship between the state and the family in providing children with a humane and caring upbringing in the 21st century. It was established by the National Family and Parenting Institute and NCH (previously known as National Children’s Homes), with support from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The Commission considered the developing boundaries between the state and the family, what is supportive on the one hand and insufficiently supportive or detrimental to human rights on the other. It addressed three core questions: • How and to what extent should the state intervene in the care and upbringing of children, and what kind of reciprocal responsibility, if any, does it have to support families? • To what extent is it right for parents to be held responsible for the actions of their children? Where should their responsibilities begin and end? • How far and in what way should the role of the state in supporting and intervening in families be formalised and made transparent? Values. The Commission’s recommendations have been informed by these values:

  • This is the first Annual Review of the 2005-2008 Children’s Services Plan. The review is based on the action plans agreed for the respective Sub-Committees of the Western Area Children and Young People’s Committee. The Children and Young People’s Committees across the four Health and Social Services Board areas in Northern Ireland have worked closely to develop a collaborative approach to planning, commissioning and delivering services to children, young people and their families. The context of statutory, voluntary and community collaboration with an active involvement of children, young people and their parents can only improve the outcomes for our children. It is important at this time with the restructuring of public sector organisations, that these benefits are retained and enhanced.

  • PAPER 12 EDUCATION AND SKILLS AUTHORITY: DIRECTOR OF CHILDREN’S SERVICES Purpose 1. The purpose of this paper is to consider the implications of the Ministerial announcement on 22 November 2005 that contained a reference to the appointment of a Director of Children’s Services within the ESA. Background 2. In November 2005 Angela Smith said she wanted to see “the appointment of a Director of Children’s Services to co-ordinate the Education Authority’s responsibilities for children.” Later in the same statement the Minister noted the “inter-dependence of public service provision”, and that “the appointment of a Director of Children’s Services is a clear recognition of this.” This suggests that the Director of Children’s Services should have a role in working with other organisations outside the ESA that deliver services to children. 3. The concept of a Director of Children's Services comes from the GB Children Act 2004 and it is a key part of the Every Child Matters agenda . The rationale for the introduction of the arrangements in GB comes from the shared policy agenda (Every Child Matters) to maximise opportunities and minimise risks for all children and young people by focusing services more effectively around their needs. 4. Before considering how to give effect to the Ministerial commitment to establish a similar post in Northern Ireland, it may be useful to set out some of the key points of the GB legislation.

  • Every Child Matters: Change for Children in Social Care Front Cover Foulstone Mural photograph: Gavin Joynt. Every child matters, the Government’s vision for children’s services, was published in September 2003. It proposed reshaping children’s services to help achieve the outcomes children and young people told us are key to well-being in childhood and later life. ● Be healthy ● Stay safe ● Enjoy and achieve ● Make a positive contribution ● Achieve economic well-being The Government has legislated for changes in the way children’s services work together. Every Child Matters: Change for Children explains how the new Children Act 2004 forms the basis of a long-term programme of change. This document is one of a series that describe the implications for different services. All of these documents and others referred to in the text are available at www.everychildmatters.gov.uk.

Timms and June Thoburn NSPCC Review of Legislation Relating to Children in Family Proceedings NSPCC Your Shout! i Foreword During the past year the NSPCC has undertaken a Review of Legislation Relating to Children in Family Proceedings.We felt that the time was ripe for an audit of the Children Act, just over 10 years on from its implementation.The purpose of the project has been to produce a report with recommendations for reform.We have drawn together a panel of experts to seek submissions/evidence from all those involved with child law and practice to identify problem areas and proposals for improvements.We have consulted with children and young people who have had first hand experience of the operation of the Children Act. It has been an extremely useful exercise which has produced valuable information from the point of view of both practice and the consumer. This report represents the results of the vast consultation of children’s and young people's views. Over 700 children and young people have responded to the Your Shout! questionnaire which was promoted with The Who Cares? Trust through the Who Cares? magazine to 30,000 children and young people in public care

  • ENNISKILLEN AT NIGHT STRATEGY An Integrated Approach FOUNDATION REPORT ENNISKILLEN AT NIGHT – AN INTEGRATED APPROACH ENNISKILLEN AT NIGHT An Integrated Approach Executive Summary Enniskillen’s evening economy is generally considered to be ‘a problem’ and the town is described as almost being a ‘different place’ at night. The result of this is that the town centre has become more than just a focus for leisure, entertainment and cultural activity for people of all ages. It has specifically become a focus for young people, with all the adherent problems that this may attract. To address this, the approach suggested by Fermanagh District Policing Partnership (DPP) and Fermanagh Community Safety Partnership (CSP) is ‘to build a partnership approach to ensure that Enniskillen town centre can continue to develop as a vibrant and family orientated area, whilst ensuring visitors and inhabitants feel safe and that the town is a place where everyone can visit and enjoy themselves’.

  • The Trust has over this past 15 months been subject to considerable detailed review from a number of external and professional bodies. The review brought to the Trust’s attention significant deficits in service provision and as a result a set of actions were put in place to address the deficits. This report details the sequence of events from March 2005, the specific issues that were brought to the attention of the Trust and the Trust’s response to these issues. It is important to realise that this has been an all consuming exercise for Trust staff, its greatest asset and, without their continued commitment and dedication, the significant changes that have taken place within the organisation would not have been possible. The Trust would like to sincerely thank the staff and acknowledge the support and guidance which has been given by the Clinical Governance Support Team (CGST), the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS) and the Western Health and Social Services Board (WHSSB). During 2004, the Trust undertook an internal risk assessment which identified clinical governance issues in maintaining anaesthetic and critical care services at Tyrone County and Erne Hospitals In early 2005 the Trust commissioned the NHS Clinical Governance Support Team (NHS CGST) to validate the Trust’s internal risk assessment and perform a comprehensive risk and governance review of all the acute hospital services within the Trust. The Trust subsequently requested that community children’s services were included as part of the review.

    No child can be identified by any posts on this website. Every child should be able to move on in future without reminder of past intervention by any authority. Many victims of the U.K. System are the children.
    We are indeed aware of Article 170: Privacy for children involved in certain proceedings. but also Section 62: Publication of material relating to legal proceedings (251.252.) Which means that nothing can be published that may identify any CHILD during court process yet; Council's can publish photographs and detailed profiles of children online in advertising them for adoption.
