Alternative Care and Children

Last Updated: Tuesday, 9 March 2021

This report covers the rights of the most vulnerable children in Northern Ireland who cannot be cared for within their own family. The purpose of the report is to review the current provision and circumstances facing such children and young people and how international human rights standards can offer protection and support.

The report’s recommendations are also broad in scope and the Commission recognises that many organisations will want to build on this work and ensure that human rights are at the heart of any proposed reforms.
