Working group to examine feasibility of measures in children in care green paper

The working group exploring the feasibility of the social care practices proposed in the children in care green paper will consider how the model could maintain local authority accountability, the Department for Education and Skills announced today.

The extent to which the practices would undermine authorities’ corporate parenting responsibility has been one of the major concerns raised by social care leaders.

The department revealed the membership and terms of reference for the four groups, which will examine the future of the care population, best practice in schools, placement reform and social care practices.

Among the members of the placement reform group is Shaftesbury and Arethusa chief executive and blogger Hilton Dawson.
