Comment on Street kids refuge: Now you see it, now you don’t. by Jane Clark.

O to have been a fly on the wall at the Council Forum which is held on the Monday in between the Committee and Ordinary meetings …
It’s such a vexed issue and the public isn’t served well if we don’t get explanations as to what is happening and what is within the Council’s power. I hope the report is a really good one.
Maybe they need to say: “It’s too hard and we don’t know how to deal with it.”
This is understandable when you consider the expense and expertise required to deal with vulnerable unsupervised kids.
However, the one thing Council does have is the raw data – at least they should release that as a contribution to genuine discussion. It would be a concrete contribution and useful for the public to see what the true extent of the issues are.
