HIQA Identifies Child Protection Risks At Two Foster Care Services.

: 05/17/2017 - 10:25

Significant child protection risks were identified in two foster care services last year, according to the health watchdog.

HIQA says the facilities in the Midlands and Dublin City had failed to vet all staff and hadn't properly handled complaints about carers.

The problems were found during routine inspections which HIQA has been responsible for since 2007.

It's 10 years to the day since the organisation was founded and its director Mary Dunnion is appearing before the Oireachtas Children's Committee to mark the occasion.
