Children in care to advise on own living standards

Claudia Calleja - Times of Malta

"Children who live in out-of-home care are to form an advisory group on setting and monitoring standards in their homes for the first time," says this article from the Times of Malta. “We often speak about children, but we don’t listen to them enough,” said Matthew Vella, chief executive of the Social Care Standards Authority. The establishment of this advisory group is part of the implementation of the newly adopted standards for children in out-of-home care that came into force in February 2020.
