‘Disappointment’ at Government vision for children’s social care reform

The government has set out its vision for the children’s social care system, which it says will have “love and stable relationships” at its heart.

Its ambition for earlier intervention to help families stay together was welcomed by campaigners, but there’s widespread disappointment at the amount of money on offer – £200 million over two years.

Last year an independent review called for an investment of £2.6 billion over five years to make a lasting difference.
