Looked After Children: Improving Life Chances
5th December 2018 – The Manchester Conference Centre, Manchester
The number of children entering care is at an all-time high with 90 young people entering the system every day. The majority of cases are due to parental abuse and neglect, however, household issues, such as poverty, poor housing and substance misuse are significantly contributing to the figures. There are claims that austerity, changes within the benefits system with the introduction of Universal Credit and the slashing of essential children and family services are partly responsible for the record number of children now living in care.
The Looked After Children: Improving Life Chances conference will offer delegates the opportunity to be fully briefed on the current situation within the care system and gain an update on the latest developments in terms of policy and funding. Guided by a line-up of expert speakers, the agenda will address some of the major child protection issues facing those entering the care system and examine the support needed to ensure that looked after children receive the best possible care and can look forward to a bright future.
