It’s a Local Authority’s duty to act as a ‘Corporate Parent’ for children in care.
Who else should step up to be a Corporate Parent?
Who should have a seat at the table to help end the stigma that young people face daily?
You don’t need to be an expert!
As long as you’re care-experienced and aged 16-25, we want you to join our new advisory group, share your views, and get paid £11.95 per hour.
A little more info
The Independent Review of Children’s Social Care recommended that corporate parenting responsibilities be expanded to other public bodies in England to show their shared responsibility for care-experienced children and adults. This already happens in Scotland and we think the English government will explore doing it too.
We previously asked for this and believe it would be a good way to tackle stigma and improve opportunities and outcomes for care-experienced young people across different areas of life.
We want to get the views and thoughts of care-experienced people aged 16-25 to see what YOU think about the potential widening of corporate parenting duties in England to a range of public bodies. We would like to hear about:
Your experiences of dealing with different public bodies
What you feel could have improved your experiences
What elements were positive.
This will help us to build a better picture of what our key asks could be ahead of the government’s response to the Care Review.
