The Guardian has a statutory obligation to monitor the wellbeing of children and young people under guardianship or in the custody of the Minister. One way the Office does this this is for it’s advocates to visit young people in their residential units.
This new fact sheet talks about the purpose of the visits and how they are usually conducted. It is hoped that it will help residential care workers to most effectively integrate the visits into the house routine, to understand what the advocates will be doing and to prepare young people for the visit.
