Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order varies the Northbrook Instrument of Management Order 1973 to reflect a change in the purpose for which the Northbrook community home is used. It provides that up to 30 children of all ages, who are either looked after by a local authority or detained after conviction of a serious offence, may be accommodated at the home in secure or open accommodation. The Order also updates the Instrument of Management Order to reflect the provisions of the Children Act 1989.
