I wanted much more from the launch of “independent review for children’s social care’ in England. The dispatch has been duly noted by interested parties such as the multi million pound business The Fostering Network but I wanted the launch to be much louder. Do you hear me? MUCH LOUDER.
Unlike the Independent Care Review in Scotland launched by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon the English equivalent was announced on Friday by Secretary of State for education Gavin Williamson. Have we missed a golden opportunity to Marcus Rashford this “once in a generation” independent review for children’s social care? The statement on a Friday, so we could all have a weekend to forget about it, had all the fanfare of tumbleweed on the main street of a deserted town.
There is good news though. Josh MacAlister (33) is heading the independent review of children’s social care. “This is a once in a generation opportunity and if we get it right we will be able to set out a future plan which can better guarantee safety, stability and love for children growing up in England” – Josh McAlister
