In a bid to identify the best ways to prevent children being removed from their families, social workers will be handed “significant funds” to spend in “creative ways” as part of a Department for Education initiative. Suggestions for how the money could be used include family breaks, redecorating the home, or covering the cost of childcare. To read more, please click here.
