What ‘training’ have they had in coping with running a home (that’s if they even get given accommodation)

The Education Committee seeks a debate in the House of Commons on the Government’s response to its report about care options for looked-after children over 16 years old.  Publishing the Government Response as a special report, Education Committee Chair Graham Stuart MP said:

“The Committee’s inquiry looked at the accommodation and support offered to some of the most vulnerable children in our society. The Government’s response has gone some way to meet the concerns we identified but does not go far enough in some key areas. ………

We also believe that the failure to inspect and regulate all accommodation provided to children in care is unacceptable and wrong. …….. We know that the Government is listening but we want them to move faster and more decisively on these crucial issues.”
