Written Answers — Department for Education: Children in Care: Coronavirus (14 Jan 2021)

Vicky Ford: At the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, we recognised that care leavers would need extra support, in particular due to their financial vulnerability and their higher risk of loneliness and isolation.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Nurseries: Coronavirus (14 Jan 2021)
