Focus on Looked-after children

Corporate parenting by local authorities is seen by many to be providing insufficient support in crucial areas of looked-after children’s lives. For example, just 1 per cent make it to university and those who do enter further education are often critical of the bureaucracy they face when trying to arrange accommodation and finances. Many looked-after children are also unaware of their advocacy rights, so when things go wrong they often feel they have nobody to turn to.
