The series of reports released today (Wednesday 5 February) clearly sets out the direction of travel required to transform the care system into one which places lived-experience, family and relationships at its heart.
Anyone reading the reports will be under no illusion about the scale of change needed, but also the strong commitment to make change happen.
Stand Up For Siblings is particularly pleased to see the emphasis on the promotion and protection of sibling relationships of children in the care system.
We wholeheartedly sign up to the principal of planning and change through a process of co-production.
Stand Up For Siblings will produce a fuller response to the reports in due course.
