The Care Review

The Care Review

In January 2021, the government launched the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care. The review has been billed as a ‘once in a generation’ opportunity to bring about radical change to a system too often failing the children, young people and families it should be supporting.

In response, the All Party Parliamentary Group for Looked After Children and Care Leavers (for which Become is secretariat) has launched a Spotlight Inquiry, gathering valuable evidence and insights to inform the review. Each spotlight session is chaired by a local MP and attendees have the opportunity to hear directly from young people about their views and experiences of care to share their views on care and community in their area.
