CoramBAAF joins cross-charity call on government to carry out meaningful review of care system

  • Date:

CoramBAAF form part of a 27 charity-strong collective, calling on the government to urgently move forward with an independent review of the care system that listens to care-experienced voices.

Initiated by Become, a national charity for children in care and care leavers, a letter has been submitted to education secretary, Gavin Williamson, sharing concerns at the serious financial pressures local authorities are facing.

Signed by Dr Carol Homden, Coram CEO, Brigid Robinson, managing director of Coram Voice and Kevin Lowe, managing director of CoramBAAF, the letter also lays out the principles of the review, calling for it to:

  • be independently led
  • have care-experienced people at the heart
  • be evidence-based
  • be given sufficient time and resource
  • have cross-government commitment to act on its conclusions.
