Our campaign to keep children in care close to the people and places that matter to them.

Each year, children in care are being moved miles away from the community, people, and places that matter to them.

Our research reveals that...

We know this is having a harmful impact on the lives and life chances of children in care.

Children are being let down by a care system in urgent need of change.

This is a national issue facing local authorities across the country, yet despite recent proposals to improve the care system, there’s still no national commitment or strategy to keep children close to the people and places that matter to them when it is in their best interest.

Our #GoneTooFar campaign seeks to keep children in care close to the people and places that matter to them – ensuring they have the love, stability, and security we all need to thrive.

We’re calling on the Government to:

  1. Commit to stop children being moved miles from home (unless in their best interests)
  2. Develop and publish national and local strategies to increase the supply of appropriate local options, so that children don’t have to be moved miles away from their support networks.

#GoneTooFar in the media

We'll be adding news coverage here as the campaign progresses, including stories amplifying young people's views and experiences.
