The Department is committed to setting up a Residential Care Leadership Board to drive significant improvements in the children’s residential care system in England. We have already advertised for the position of chair and the board will be up and running in the New Year (2018).

The board will initially focus on Sir Martin Narey’s recommendations for improving commissioning practices and developing ways of “Staying Close” for care leavers after they move out of residential homes.

Any plans for reporting on progress will be discussed with the chair on appointment.
