This report looked at areas which in some cases differed from the Williamson Inquiry.
The aim was to hear from a wide variety of people involved on a regular basis for the health, welfare and safety of the Island’s young people. The report found that much good work is going on supporting families and children within a variety of sometimes very difficult and emotive situations.
The report covers:
- key findings
- states services; governance and accountability
- fostering, adoption and residential care
- service delivery and access
- children and the law
The panel stated that the issues affecting the lives and wellbeing of children and their family life and values were far wider than the content of the Williamson work and this has proved to be the case. For example, the work done by Family Nursing & Home Care with their network of Health Visitors who play a pivotal role in services and support provided to vulnerable children and their families.
