Community_care_inform_logoThe government’s Stable Homes, Built on Love strategy is the biggest reform programme for children’s social care in many years.

It is designed to ensure that many more children are supported to stay with their families or, with kinship carers; that those at risk are much better protected than is currently the case, and that those who do need to go into care receive a much better experience and, as a result, better life chances than now.

The Department for Education (DfE) strategy seeks to underpin this by supporting the development of a more skilled social work workforce that is also more stable, in order to provide children and families with much-needed continuity of support and relationship-based practice.

While the plan is being brought in by a Conservative government, chief social worker for children and families Isabelle Trowler has said that she believes that the trajectory of the reforms will not change in the event of a change of government in the forthcoming election.
