Ethnicity and social care

The Department for Education (DfE) has issued a report, commissioned as part of the independent children’s social care review, looking at the differences by ethnicity in the representation, experiences and outcomes of children in social care in England. Findings include: children from White and mixed ethnic groups have higher rates of acute social care activity following referral to social care; and children from Black ethnic groups were most likely to have multiple periods as a looked after child.
