On 23 May 2022, the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care published its final recommendations. On the same day, the department set out the actions it is taking to improve children’s social care and committed to publishing a detailed and ambitious implementation strategy in due course.

As the department develops an implementation strategy, we will consider the recommendations carefully, including cost implications and where legislation might be required.
