Jack’s Case: 2023 Update

In November 2020 the Ombudsman for Children’s Office published its investigation into the care of Jack, an eight-year-old boy, who was first referred to the HSE Disability Services when he was 4 years old.

Jack’s Case: 2023 Update is our second follow up report into his case and we have found that Tusla has implemented all of our recommendations. However, the HSE has failed to fully implement five out of our six recommendations, and these continue to have a devastating impact on children and families today.
We are publishing this statement alongside our Nowhere to Turn report, where we share some of the complaints we have received from other parents of children with disabilities since our investigation into Jack’s case to show how Ireland, in 2023, treats some of its most vulnerable children.
