New research conducted by Ofsted found that just over half of children living in children's homes in England had residential care included in their care plan.

This "illustrates the challenges faced by the children, and by social workers and commissioners trying to find suitable care for them, as well as by the children’s homes that are aiming to meet the children’s needs,” according to the report entitled Why Do Children Go Into Children's Homes?
