The Alliance welcomes the publication of the General Scheme and Heads of the Aftercare Bill 2014 and the opportunity to be consulted on them by the Joint Committee on Health and Children. The Heads of Bill will amend the Child Care Act 1991 to provide qualifying care leavers with a statutory entitlement to the preparation and review of an aftercare plan by the Child and Family Agency. The aftercare plan will identify the need of the child or young person for aftercare supports.
