CONSULTATION RESPONSE 30 January 2007 Green Paper: Care Matters TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE IN CARE SCIE welcomes the opportunity to comment on the proposals set out in Care Matters.

We support the premise for the proposals that our goals for children in care should be the same as our goals for our own children.

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)

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).



April 2005 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 Hurt Inside The imprisonment of women and girls in Northern Ireland PROFESSOR PHIL SCRATON and DR LINDA MOORE People held in detention, whether in prison or otherwise, are particularly vulnerable to breaches of their human rights. The ‘closed’ nature of prison regimes makes it very important that they are open to inspection and investigation by a range of bodies concerned with the care and human rights of those inside. This is all the more crucial because many people who are in prison, especially women prisoners, were vulnerable prior to their detention, through factors such as mental health problems, educational difficulties, drug and alcohol related issues and sexual abuse.

This leaflet deals only with applications that are made at a county court. How can the Family Law Act help me? This new Act, which became law in October 1997, protects victims of domestic violence with two different types of orders: • A Non-Molestation Order - which prevents another person from harming you or a child. • An Occupation Order - which will indicate who can live in the family home and can direct another person to leave the home.

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.
