Section 109 - Support for category 2 young people
310.Section 109 requires the local authority that is responsible for a category 2 young person to safeguard and promote his or her well-being, and (to the extent that it is required) support the young person by maintaining him or her, providing suitable accommodation and any other support set out in regulations. Support may be provided in kind or in cash. Regulations which may be made by the Welsh Ministers in accordance with the regulation making power in subsection (1)(c) may also define “suitable accommodation”, and make provision about the suitability of landlords or other providers of accommodation that a local authority provides or secures by way of support under this section. This restates the provision in section 23B of the Children Act 1989.
