This session will be followed by representatives of the Department of Health and Social Care on Monday, 11 March, which includes the director of children and families and the director of estates and public housing .  

Children's charity St Christopher's will also give evidence as will the manager from the Aftercare Team.

The committee formed after a motion from Ayre and Michael MHK Tim Baker last year, which received unanimous backing from Tynwald.
