dc.descriptionOver the past number of years the Office has received and examined complaints on an individual basis in which issues were raised regarding homeless service provision for children by the HSE. This includes children already in the care of the State (voluntary care or on a Care Order) who were accessing homelessness services following placement breakdown and those accommodated under Section 5 of the Child Care Act 1991 (deemed to be homeless, but not in the care of the HSE). Section 5 of the Child Care Act states that: Where it appears to a health board that a child in its area is homeless, the board shall enquire into the child’s circumstances, and if the board is satisfied that there is no accommodation available to him which he can reasonably occupy, then, unless the child is received into the care of the board under the provisions of this Act, the board shall take such steps as are reasonable to make available suitable accommodation for him.en_GB
