Care Crisis Review: A sector-led review of the rise in applications for care orders and the number of children in care

The Care Crisis Review is examining the rise in applications for care orders and the number of children in care.

The review is ongoing between November 2017 and June 2018, facilitated by the Family Rights Group, and funded by the Nuffield Foundation. It is supported by stakeholders in the child welfare and family justice system.

The review will collate evidence on the causes of increase in care proceedings, scrutinise policies and practices that may lead to reductions in care applications and children in care, as well as consulting with children and young people, parents and kinship carers, and sector experts.

You can find more information on the Family Rights Group website, here, along with information about getting involved in the review.
