Children's social care: 'wide-ranging' review launched in England

Patrick Butler - The Guardian

"The [UK] government has launched a review of children’s social care in England, calling it a 'once-in-a-generation opportunity' to overhaul a system it says is failing vulnerable young people and creaking under the strain of rising numbers of children entering care," according to this article from the Guardian. The review "will examine early years help, child protection, fostering and kinship care, and care homes, as well as the family support measures needed to prevent children having to enter care."
