Child & Youth Care Centres (CYCC's) (old "Children's Homes")

The Children's Act defines a Child and Youth Care Centre as "a facility that provides residential care to more than six children outside of the child's family environment in accordance with a residential programme suited for the children in the facility".  This new definition encompases a range of facilities that in the past were registered separartely from children's homes to schools of industry. Each centre should provide specialist programmes.  

(These facilities are NOT CYCC's: Partial Care, Drop in Centres, Boarding Schools, School Hostels, Prisons.)
