Early last year we considered whether to develop an overarching strategy for children in care. We decided that as there was a general consensus about what needed to improve, it would be better to simply get on and drive a programme of change. Since then we have set in place reforms to ensure that all children have strong and stable placements, achieve good educational outcomes and receive on-going quality support when they leave care.
