Children's Authority Saddened by Death of Child

Date: 2017-06-19

The Children’s Authority of Trinidad and Tobago is deeply saddened by the unfortunate death of a child at our Child Support Centre.

At this time, the Authority is committed to the safety and well-being of the other children at the Centre and therapeutic support and counselling are being provided to the children as well as the staff at the Centre.

This situation is a reminder that despite consistent support and counselling, some of the children who are received into care are often troubled because they have undergone significant trauma.

The Authority is conducting investigations.
