TACT PROPOSES CREATION OF NATIONAL CARE SERVICE

A new report Towards A National Care Family, by Tact chief executive Andy Elvin sets out proposals for one national service covering fostering, adoption, kinship, residential, foster, and secure care.

The proposed service would also take over responsibility for children who return to their birth parents from care and the secure youth justice estate. 

The National Care Family (NCF) would remove “parental and operational responsibility” for children in care and care leavers from local authorities and offer lifelong support to care-experienced adults, Elvin states.
