Nain residents have been noticing an increase in the activity of Child, Youth and Family Services (CYFS)in the community.
A number of children have been removed from their homes and placed with other families in recent months.
Susanne Hillier is the Director of Communications with CYFS.
She says there was extra support flown into the community following a tragedy in July.
In small communities they don’t release the figures of how many children have been removed.
This is due to child protection issues.
She says releasing the number could lead to identifying the child.
However, says Hillier, the number has been lower than five.
And the majority of those children have been placed in foster homes or with family members in the community.
