THEME

Effective and efficient decision making and necessary intervention as early as possible in a child’s life ensures that all permanence options are considered and accessed. This gives the child the best chance to be brought up in a secure, safe and nurturing home. On average, after a child enters care, it takes two years for permanence plans to be concluded. There is a commitment at a local and national level to reduce drift and delay in care planning.

 

Workers need to be informed and confident in their role to maintain the momentum needed in bringing about permanently better lives for children.
