The review is a fundamental part of the government’s manifesto. The urgent local and national response to the COVID-19 outbreak has delayed the launch of the Review of Children’s Social Care, but the department is making preparations to launch as soon as possible and will set out further details at that point. 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.
