All-Party Parliamentary Group
We organise the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Care-Experienced Children and Young People (APPG).
2023: Inquiry into Corporate Parenting
The APPG for Care-Experienced Young People is launching an inquiry into the Government's proposals to extend corporate parenting duties.
An inquiry to consider which public bodies corporate parenting responsibilities should be extended to and what the reforms should look like. We want to gather the views and insights of care-experienced young people, and others, and share these with the Government to influence and inform the development of these reforms.
2021: The Spotlight Inquiry
The APPG launched the Spotlight Inquiry in 2021 which aimed to shine a light on the care system – or systems – across the country.
The inquiry explored themes of care and community, and we heard from care-experienced young people and adults, carers, professionals and others with an interest in improving the care system. The findings of the inquiry fed into the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care.
