Middlegate Children’s Home

Volume 493: debated on Tuesday 2 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will commission a review of the future funding of the Middlegate Children’s Home in Lincolnshire. (277065)

The Government do not fund children’s homes directly. It is the responsibility of local authorities to commission places in children’s homes and to assess the need for, and availability of, sufficient children’s home provision. Local authorities can obtain support in this role from the DCSF Commissioning Support Programme which will offer Children’s Trusts bespoke support based on their needs and focus on key areas of concern.
