VISIT BY LUCY FAITHFUL FOUNDATION – CHILD SAFAGUARDING IN ST HELENA
 

Mr Mike Sheath (pictured) and Mr Adrian Todd from the Lucy Faithful Foundation will arrive on St Helena on 11 May 2013 for two weeks, to continue work on the Department for International Development (DFID)-funded child safeguarding programme.
 

DFID has been supporting child safeguarding initiatives in the OTs for the last seven years. Child safeguarding requires long term efforts to achieve sustainable improvements and practices to enhance child safety. As part of this ongoing process and looking ahead, Mike and Adrian will assess the Island’s child protection policies and procedures and recommend any improvements that might be needed.

PUBLICATION OF SOCIAL POLICY PLAN DELAYED
 

The first draft of the Social Policy Plan was due to be completed and shared at scheduled community meetings during May and June, following the series of participation meetings that took place earlier in the year. The first draft of the plan is ready. However, the community events have been postponed until August due to the Dissolution of Legco and the consequent period of Purdah.
 

‘Purdah’ describes a convention under which politicians (such as Ministers in a ministerial system, or Executive Council and Council Committees in St Helena) who remain in office during an election must not use their offices to advance their own (or, in a party-political system, their party’s) electoral prospects. It works differently in different places, but the principle is common to most democratic processes. There is a parallel principle that Public Officers must take particular care over political impartiality during an election. This has a number of practical implications, including meaning that major new initiatives or polices cannot be launched until after the General Election.
 

With around 300 people taking part in developing the Social Policy Plan it is important that the community gets the chance to consider the plan that they developed and to provide feedback. This will happen once the period of Purdah is complete, when members of the public can provide feedback before the document is finalised.

Following Purdah the community will be notified of the events to enable them to feedback and comment on the plan.

GENERAL ELECTION 2013
 

The General Election for 2013 will be an election like no other. The whole Island will become a single Electoral Constituency, meaning greater choice of candidates and wider representation. Each voter will be able to select up to 12 candidates in the election.
 

However, in order to vote or stand as a candidate your name must be on the new Electoral Register. Those eligible to vote or stand must be 18 years or older, have St Helenian status, or be a spouse/life partner of someone who has that status, and must ordinarily reside on St Helena. A new ‘Provisional Electoral Register’ will be published early in May, and there will be an opportunity, then, for names to be added or removed (or for other changes, such as Electoral District, to be made). Look out for further publicity about this process.

If you want to add your name, or remove the name of someone who has died or left the Island, please take a little time to complete the simple application form, which is available from The Castle or the Customer Service Centre, or from Assistant Registration Officers in the Electoral Districts .


Use your democratic rights – ensure you are registered to vote!
 

The date for the 2013 General Election has yet to be set – but it will take place during July 2013. Further details will follow shortly.

CHEVENING SCHOLARS VISIT FOREIGN OFFICE
 

Chevening Scholarships is the UK Government’s global scholarship programme, funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and partner organisations. The programme awards scholarships to outstanding students with leadership potential from around the world to study postgraduate courses at universities in the UK.
 

On 18 April 2013, the Foreign Commonwealth Office hosted a visit for two Chevening Scholars from the Overseas Territories, Sam Cockwell (Falkland Islands) and Tara Thomas (St Helena). Sam and Tara were treated to a lunch and were able to meet with officials from the FCO’s Overseas Territories Directorate who deal with issues relevant to both Islands; including Peter Hayes, Director of the Overseas Territories Directorate, Martin Longden, Head of the Falklands and Southern Oceans Department and Alan Huckle, former Governor of the Falkland Islands. Also present were representatives of the St Helena Government, Kedell Worboys (UK Office) and Gillian Francis, Deputy Chief Secretary (currently in the UK under the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Fund training programme)
 

Chevening Scholars come from over 116 countries worldwide (excluding the USA and the EU), and this year the Scholarships will support approximately 700 individuals. There are over 41,000 Chevening alumni around the world who together comprise an influential and highly regarded global network. The programme provides full or part funding for full-time courses at postgraduate level, normally a one-year Master’s degree, in any subject and at any UK university.
