Scope and Content

1. General. Refers to meeting of the Education Committee, the Children's Sub-Committee, and the [Children's] Department to discuss at DHSS [Department of Health and Social Services] Report on the Child Care Service and the report of the Working Party set up to examine the Department of Health and Social Services Report. 2. Reception into Care. Recommends the approval of the outline of the present policy for reception into Care, noting the obligation of the Education Committee to receive into Care any child under the age of 17 who does not have or has been abandoned by their parents or legal guardian, who is lost, or have parents or legal guardians temporarily or permenantly prevented, due to health or circumstances, from caring for children. Details investigationary practices to lead to the admission of children into Care, mentioning the role of the Child Care Officer. 3. Residential Care. Recommends that the use of Haut de la Garenne as a Children's Home be phased out as soon as possible, with Haut de la Garenne being replaced by smaller units, one of which should cater for teenagers. Notes that as a result, the voluntary Children's Homes at Brig-Y-Don and La Préférence could be used more fully. Notes a visit by the Sub-Committee to small residential homes in Hampshire dated 5 May 1982, and details their findings.
