The Guardian view on looked-after children: time to join the dots

The Guardian

This editorial piece from the Guardian calls on the UK government to conduct a review of the care system, as promised in the Conservatives’ manifesto. The piece notes "the mounting pile of evidence that the system is flawed" and calls for a review to "start as soon as possible, be fully independent, and have a remit encompassing all the children and young people in the care of the state – including the awkward details of their exit from this care into adulthood."
