Financial Impact of Transition Annex: Lighthouse Children’s Village

Better Care Network, Changing the Way We Care

In any transition process, different levels of risk and challenges can impact the children in care and therefore need to be managed. In the case of Lighthouse Children’s Village, the high-risk nature of the transition posed different legal, social, emotional, and financial challenges throughout the closure and reintegration processes.

Most of the financial implications of managing these challenges can be seen in the financial impact analysis. However, not all the impacts are reflected. Some details of the abuse, manipulation, and mismanagement only surfaced well after the closure of the residential care institution, when monitoring and investigation were ongoing.

Costs associated with responding to these may not all be fully reflected in this case study annex.
