The Alliance for Children in Care and Care Leavers, a group of 24 organisations in the children’s sector including CoramBAAF, has relaunched its vision for children and young people in and leaving care ahead of the House of Lords debates on the Children and Social Care Bill. The Alliance is calling for a clearer framework on what care should be aiming for, and for the gaps in the system to be addressed, and wants to see:
- A statement in law that the principal aim of the care system for children and young people who remain in care is to achieve recovery and healing from past harm, and promote resilience and emotional wellbeing.
- A new child-led outcomes framework for looked after children so that meeting the principal aim is properly assessed and judged.
