A collective of 21 charities and groups who work with and represent the interests of care-experienced children, young people and adults across England have sent a joint letter to the Secretary of State for Education, Nadhim Zahawi, calling on the government to firmly commit to implementing much-needed reform to the care system following the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care.
Committing to a timetable for reform that is transparent, ambitious, and underscores the urgency needed to improve children’s social care.
Securing significant resources from the Treasury to prime-pump reforms that improve children’s social care.
Ensuring the voices of care-experienced children and adults remain at the centre of reform.
A joint letter was also sent to Sir Keir Starmer, Leader of the Opposition, to encourage the Labour Party to give support in the coming months to hold the government to account and ensure that the reform of children’s social care is the very best it can be.
