As set out in the manifesto, we are committed to undertaking a review of the care system. Alongside this we are providing councils with an additional £1 billion for adults and children’s social care in every year of this Parliament. This is on top of spending £84 million over five years to keep more children at home safely.
We have also invested to deliver high quality children’s social care. The number of children’s services rated outstanding is up and the number rated inadequate down by a third since 2017. This review will allow us to go even further and to ensure that all care placements and settings provide children and young adults with the support they need.
