No child should be at risk while in care- Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said it is unacceptable that any child should be at risk while in care.

The North Belfast MLA said:

”I was shocked to hear of the failures at a care facility which put vulnerable children with mental health problems at risk. 

”It is unacceptable that any child should be at risk while in care and I welcome the decision by the regulator to suspend services at this particular setting.

“The crisis facing mental health services will only get worse in the time ahead as the DUP’s collapse of the Executive blocks a three-year budget which prioritised funding for mental health, tackling waiting lists and transforming health and social care, with money for more doctors, nurses and social workers.

“The DUP need to get back to work and put people and the health service before their own narrow party interests.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
