Review sets course for social services

A far-reaching report on social services for children and families in the Island was debated in Tynwald this week.It's been compiled by pariiament's social affairs committee, and runs to more than 160 pages.

All nine of its recommendations have been accepted by the Council of Ministers.Social services have been urged to ensure all staff understand their care aim: to keep families together.

The Children and Families division has been told it should welcome complaints from families, and deal with them positively.

The committee invited members of the public to give evidence about the way they were treated by social workers (amid concerns over the way some child care investigations were carried out).Garff MHK Daphne Caine is the government's Children's Champion.

She says those who came forward gave powerful testimony.
