Welcome to sections 3-6 of the Child Care Act 1991. These
long awaited sections are among the most important ‘nuts
and bolts’ of the Child Care Act. They affect children who are
most at risk, that is those who are at risk of being removed from
their family because their welfare is seriously threatened. The next
year, when the implementation of these sections are tested in case
conferences and courts throughout Ireland, will be crucial. Over
the years we have all called at various times for these very sections
to be implemented, for example, the Kilkenny Report May "93.
Will the promise ofa new dawn be fulfilled?
