New safeguarding strategy boosts support for lone child migrants
New training for foster carers has been announced as part of a new strategy to improve the care of unaccompanied children. The training, which will be made available to 1,000 foster carers and support workers, is backed by updated statutory guidance, a review of local authority funding and a drive to improve inter-agency advice and information sharing. It complements the guidance already available to every foster carer as part of their duties under the government’s Prevent strategy.
