ChildLinks Issue 3: Fostering

Barnardos. (1995). ChildLinks Issue 3: Fostering.
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 of a new dawn be fulfilled?
