Children in Care

Volume 487: debated on Monday 9 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what steps he is taking to ensure that children in care are provided with stable accommodation. (253624)

Through the White Paper “Care Matters: Time for Change” and the Children and Young Persons Act 2008 the Government have put in place a range of measures to improve stability for looked after children.

Through the Fostering Changes training programme and the Multi-dimensional Treatment Foster Care and Social Pedagogy pilots we are taking action to help improve the range of support and skills for foster carers and residential workers to help them meet the needs of looked after children to prevent placement breakdown.
