Scope and Content

Provides details about the mother and the father, including ages and employment. Includes remarks about the mother's background and influence of her personality on her husband. Refers to concerns expressed by the Children's Office and medical professionals including Dr D'Entrement about the general care of the children, referring to the admission of the one of the boys in his early days to Brig-y-Don and involvement of the maternal grandmother in the care of the children. Refers to the admission of the children to Haut de la Garenne on 25 July 1979 and 30 April 1980 and transfer of the children to Group Home Le Squez on 6 December 1980, describing this placement as a long-term care arrangement. Includes comments about the home situation, referring to evicition of the parents on account of rent arrears and little prospect of improvement. Refers to problems with the parents and the children, mentioning the mother's prosecution in the Police Court in 1978 charged with neglecting her child. Also includes comments about the instability of the relationship between the parents but notes that both maintain regular contact with their children at Haut de la Garenne and at the Group Home. Outlines main points of consideration, including the length of time the children have been in care, the admission of one of the children straight from the Maternity Hospital, history of neglect by mother and failure of parents to make effort to better themselves or their home situation. Concludes that given the family circumstances and if no provision is made, guidance should be sought regarding whether a Care Order be considered for the children.
