Pushing for care in unregulated settings 

Too many young people in care live in unregulated settings which can’t provide them with the stability and support they need.

Growing use of unregulated accommodation is a symptom and not a solution to the shortage of safe and suitable places for children to live.

The government’s action is insufficient to address this problem and will further formalise a ‘two-tier’ care system which puts 16 and 17 year olds at additional risk.

We’re proud to be a part of the #KeepCaringTo18 campaign and believe that all children deserve care until the age of 18, no matter where they live.

Last year, we jointly produced a young people’s version of the government’s consultation on unregulated accommodation and forced an extension to the deadline for responses to allow more care-experienced people to share their views.
