Care matters: time for change
Stationery Office, Jun 21, 2007 - Education - 141 pages
There is a significant gap between the quality of life of children in care and other children; e.g. in 2006 only 12% of children in care achieved 5 A-C grades at GCSE, 45% are assessed has having mental health problems, 30% of care leavers aged 19 were not in education, employment or training. This white paper sets out the steps to be taken to improve the outcomes for these children. It builds on the responses to the Green Paper 'Care matters: transforming the lives of children and young people in care' and the conclusions of four working groups established to investigate best practice. The White Paper is in eight sections covering: corporate parenting; family and parenting support; care placements; education; health; the transition to adulthood; the role of the practitioner; and next steps.
