The Care Review

The APPG for Looked After Children and Care Leavers has launched its Spotlight Inquiry, which aims to shine a light on the care system – or systems – across the country.

In January 2021, the government launched the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care, led by Josh MacAlister as Chair. 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 APPG for Looked After Children and Care Leavers has launched its Spotlight Inquiry, gathering valuable evidence and insights to inform the review.

We have held regional evidence sessions. Each chaired by a local MP, the online regional evidence sessions welcome those with different personal and professional experiences of care to share their views on care and community in their area. Please subscribe to the APPG mailing list to receive a notification of when booking for each session opens.
