Strategic Review of Residential Care Facilities

The Government is to undertake a strategic review of its residential child care facilities, to strengthen the services provided for children in State care.

This was disclosed by State Minister for Education, Youth and Information, Hon. Floyd Green, following a meeting with the senior management team of the Child Development Agency (CDA), at its head office in downtown Kingston, on March 21.

Highlighting other plans for the agency, Mr. Green said the Government is also exploring more options to facilitate transitional living for children. He noted that one of the problems identified is that children still need support when they are to exit residential care.
