The Act provides the legislative framework for the creation of a regional Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland (SBNI).
A targeted consultation on the draft Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland (Membership, Procedure, Functions and Committee) Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2011, aimed at a range of statutory and voluntary sector agencies that deliver services to children and families, was carried out from 16 November 2011 - 30 December 2011, with an extension of one week as requested by some agencies in view of the Christmas holiday period.
The SBNI was established in September 2012: The SBNI replaced the Regional Child Protection Committee (RCPC) which was in operation from November 2009.
The RCPC and its predecessor bodies (the four Area Child Protection Committees which were aligned to former Health and Social Services Boards) were responsible for promoting inter-agency work to protect children and to monitor and evaluate how well child protection services were working.
On 5 November 2013, Kathleen Marshall, former Commissioner for Children and Young People in Scotland, was appointed to lead the Inquiry.
The Inquiry focused on both children and young people living at home in the community and those living in care.The Response Team has considered the relevant HSC recommendation and determined they all should be accepted.
