The Care Review is a fundamental part of the government’s manifesto. While work has been delayed due to our immediate response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the review will be launching as soon as possible. The review will be bold, broad, and independently led, taking a fundamental look across children’s social care, with the aim of better supporting, protecting and improving the outcomes of vulnerable children and young people.
