The International Women’s Resource Network is calling for a review and remodeling of the Children’s Authority.
It says correspondence was sent to Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley, by the IWRN on May 21st, 2020.
However, it claims to date a response has not been received.
In a media release on Tuesday the Network says there should also be a comprehensive review of “The Children Community Residences, Foster Homes and Nurseries Act 2000” with a view to enacting relevant amendments aimed at effectively addressing the current challenges including closure of residences that are unfit for operation.
It says once sufficient evidence is available, ensure that perpetrators particularly with regards to the incidents at Community Residences are arrested and charged; their names MUST also be placed in the Sex Offenders’ Registry.
