The government's vision for excellent children's social care in England
In January 2016 the Department for Education published Children's social care reform: a vision for change, setting out its plans for improving the quality of children's social care services in England over the next 5 years.
Putting children first: delivering our vision for excellent children's social care outlines how these changes will be made. It builds on Adoption: a vision for change, published in March 2016, and responds to the recent review of residential care by Sir Martin Narey and review of multi-agency arrangements for safeguarding children by Alan Wood CBE.
The plan is built around three pillars of reform:
- people and leadership
- practice and systems
- governance and accountability.
