Although as the results above suggest there was a positive response to this chapter, there was a theme in responses that the purpose of the information included in this chapter was not always clear.
Changes to Chapter 6
On this basis the information within Chapter 6 was reviewed, and based on consultation comments some text was redistributed as appropriate, for example:
- Information on the participation of children in their rights was added to Chapter 2 (Children's Rights).
- Following Chapter 3 (Assessment of Capacity) and Chapter 4 (Consideration of Wellbeing), information was added to the end of Chapter 4 on further advice on both assessments.
After reviewing Chapter 6 and relocating relevant material, the remaining text and chapter was deleted.
