Description:
The Child Care Act 1991 will require many new responsibilities to be incorporated into the Health Board's statutory functions for child and family care services. Under Section 8 of the Act: "A health board shall, within 12 months of the commencement of this Part and annually thereafter, have a report prepared on the adequacy of the child care and family support services available in its area". When preparing this report the Health Board will have regard to the needs of children who are not receiving adequate care and protection and in particular have regard to the following:- (a) children whose parents are dead or missing; (b) children whose parents have deserted or abandoned them; (c) children who are in the care of the Board; (d) children who are homeless; (e) children who are at risk of being neglected or ill-treated; (f) children whose parents are unable to care for them due to ill health or for any other reason. The additional responsibilities will have to be integrated into the Board's existing service provision with appropriate organisational and structural adaptation to ensure a fully integrated child and family support and care service.
