Children Looked After and Care Leavers' Strategy 2020-2024

The previous Children Looked After and Care Leavers Strategy 2018-2021 needed refreshing and rewriting due to the service changes required to improve social work practice for children looked after and care leavers since the Ofsted inspection of February 2019. A new strategy has now been written to reflect the current priorities, plans and the changes required to deliver effective services that will achieve sustainable and positive outcomes for children looked after and care leavers.
