Oversight Visit Report Back

standing-committee-wp-logoThe Standing Committee on Premier, Gender, Disabled and Youth came for an oversight visit to Christine Revell Children’s Home recently, and we gladly share their report with you here.

An excerpt from the report:

“The oversight visit is a key mechanism established by the Provincial Parliament to achieve its constitutional oversight mandate within the province. It is intended to ensure that Members of the Provincial Parliament, through its standing committees, continuously keep abreast with developments and delivery issues in the province. It also accords an opportunity to undertake oversight visits and interact with communities in order to get “first hand” information on the needs and challenges that are confronting the citizens. They also visit projects that are implemented by various government departments in the province to ascertain progress that is being made.”

“FINDINGS: That Christine Revell Children’s Home is very well managed and facilitated. According to the standing committee it is a best practice.”
