Description:
This report provides an overview of the applications for admission to special care made by Health Service Executive (HSE) Local Health Offices in 2007 and traces and tracks outcomes for the children who were subject of those applications up to November 2009. This research has been undertaken by Mark Brierley of Social Information Systems (SIS) and was commissioned by the Children Acts Advisory Board (CAAB). In addition to the CAAB, the Steering Group for the work included representation from the HSE and the Office of the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs (OMCYA). The report is based on scrutiny of anonymised special care applications and their supporting documents, interviews with social workers, children, parents/carers, staff from the special care units, guardians ad litem and solicitors. SIS had previously researched the application process and case characteristics for applications for special care made between January and June 2007 (SIS 2008). The terms of reference for this work posed five broad questions: 1. What was the profile of applicants to special care? 2. What was the previous service/intervention history of applicants (e.g. social care, educational, juvenile justice)? 3. What services/interventions have been provided since each special care application was made? 4. Where did the children go to and where are they now? 5. What are the views of stakeholders on benefits and services/interventions?
