May 19th 2008 - May 19th 2008

Scope and Content

Refers to correspondence between an individual and Senator Perchard dated 12 May 2008, and notes prepared by an individual dated 29 April and 15 May 2008. Refers to own correspondence dated 27 November 2007, a Committee, a meeting, a new role, and the Assistant Minister's revision of plans. Notes understanding that HSS [Health and Social Services] had intended to reform Brig-y-don under the control of Children's Services to remove Brig-y-don traditional residential element, with focus instead being on day time operation of a new and expanded Fostering and Adoption Service. Notes independent success of the Fostering and Adoption Service, and a new HSS [Health and Social Services] proposal for the future of Brig-y-don, mentioning the control of Children's Services, and residential care and outreach relating to problematic children. States that the care of socially disturbed children, and teenagers, would be beyond Brig-y-don's ability, mentioning the Brig-y-don Committee, and previous Brig-y-don Committee policy that Brig-y-don could not be used to house socially disturbed children. Suggests that due to changing circumstances within Jersey since the founding of Brig-y-don, Brig-y-don Children's Home should be closed over the medium term future, suggesting Easter or Spring 2009 rather than December 2008. Refers to an AGM [Annual General Meeting], and the need for Children's Services to find alternative appropriate placements for children currently resident at Brig-y-don.
