MHK asks about impact of Children's Centre changes

Mon, 29 Jan 2018

The impact of the Children's Centre's decision to end some of its services will be discussed in this week's sitting of the House of Keys.

The charity announced earlier this month that it would be ending its Early Years Services in March, while the Family Placement Service will be taken over by another provider in October.

Ramsey MHK Dr Alex Allinson wants to know what extra provision the Department of Education, Sport and Culture will put in place following the end of the Early Years Service.

Dr Allinson is also seeking details about the number of children are waiting to be adopted, and how the end of the Family Placement Service will affect this.

Education Minister Graham Cregeen and Health and Social Care Minister David Ashford will respond when the House sits tomorrow.
