The original proposal, 2016
This paper is an attempt at rethinking the systemic problems facing the funding and commissioning of care services and placements for children in need of care and adoption, across ALL types and specialisms of placement, from kinship care, through foster care, to residential care and adoption.
The ideas in this paper were developed by Kathy Evans, CEO of Children England, based on findings and discussions over several years of involvement in examining the residential care market in particular, from both provider and commissioner perspectives.
