IN THE HIGH COURT OF JUSTICE IN NORTHERN IRELAND FAMILY DIVISION OFFICE OF CARE AND PROTECTION

On 27 January 2022 a social worker was on leave travelling on an inter-city bus service in the Republic of Ireland (“RofI”) and observed a young child travelling in the company of two adults. She recognised the child as being the subject of 2 current intense social services involvement by the Trust. Neither of the accompanying adults was his parent. She telephoned her colleagues in the Trust and this has resulted in the issue of these proceedings first to the Family Care Centre with a subsequent transfer to this court.
