The Developing Role of the Guardian Ad Litem under the Children (NI) Order 1995
O'Kane, Patricia
Child Care in Practice, v12 n2 p157-168 Apr 2006
The Northern Ireland Guardian Ad Litem Agency was established consequent upon the implementation of The Children (NI) Order 1995. The role of the guardian has developed and become embedded in a changing socio-legal context. This paper will review the key influences that have impacted on predominant social work thinking. Anticipated legislative change and the challenges of managing the service in a climate of productivity indices and efficiency savings will be explored. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
