Catch up on our webinar: Reimagining The Provision Of Children’s Residential Care

The cost and quality of placements for Looked After Children is a significant challenge for Children’s Services across the country. We held a webinar on Thursday 11th November to examine the issues around children's residential care and explore a range of alternative approaches to tackling the country-wide challenges.
