The Independent Review of Children’s Social Care has published a summary of engagement with care experienced children and young people (aged 10-25) since June 2021. Areas covered in the summary include: wellbeing; relationships – including contact with siblings; and the importance of stability and having a stable place to live. Coram Voice has published a report, commissioned by the review, collating the views of more than 300 care experienced children and young people on the Care Review. Separate articles published in Community Care focus on children and young people’s experiences of social workers.
