Care Crisis Review

Family Rights Group is facilitating a sector-led Care Crisis Review which:

  • is examining the reasons for the record number of care order applications and high numbers of children in care;
  • aims to identify specific changes that can safely reduce the number of care cases coming before the family court and avert the need for children to come into or remain in care.

The group are very keen to get the views of parents, kinship carers, social workers, legal professionals, academics, elected members, managers, judges and others who work with families.
They are now launching two surveys as part of the Care Crisis Review call for evidence:

One survey is for practitioners, senior managers, elected members and the judiciary.
The other survey is for family members whose children are or have been involved with children’s social care service or subject to care proceedings.

They would be very grateful if you could complete the survey that is relevant to you, and forward the link to it to anyone you think might be interested in filling it in. The deadline for completion is Sunday 11 February 2018 (at midnight).
They will be undertaking a separate consultation with children and young people.
For more information on the Review please see their website and summary document.
