Comment on LA engagement with the care review

ADCS President Charlotte Ramsden said:

“ADCS has had ongoing engagement with the Independent review of children’s social since it was launched. We are aware that the reviewers initially prioritised engagement with experts by experience, however, they are now speaking to members of the social care workforce which will also provide more of a local authority perspective. Clearly there is a lot in the review’s recently published Case for Change that resonates with local authorities as it highlights a series of very important issues that ADCS has been raising with government over the last few years. We are also aware that many local authorities have been responding individually or in groups and this is for them to determine.

“The care review is a once in a generation opportunity to make meaningful and lasting change for the children and young people who need our help and support to thrive. Local authorities are keen to help shape the review and improve the experiences and outcomes of children and young people who are, or have ever been, in our care. ADCS will continue its engagement with the review through discussions and the submissions of information and evidence. We look forward to continuing this work as the review approaches its next phase.”
