The mum of one of my mindees wants her teenage (15) child (sibling of mindee) to collect the child from me on a few occaisions over the summer hols.
I cant find anything in welfare requirements that forbids this just "providers must only release children into the care of individuals named by the parent" (p 24). Sibling will have a 20ish minute walk home with mindee where I believe dad will be at home in bed (works nights).
So, would you agree to this?

I think you would need to get something in writing from the parents, stating that they accept full responsibility for their children once they leave your home.

i think if the parents are happy for their 15yr old to pick up their sibling that is up to them but i'd write a policy/permission form.
