star this property answer text <p>Information on the number of looked-after children who stayed in one placement during 2021/22 and the number who moved at least once can be found in the attached table.</p><p>Figures on the number of looked-after children who changed placements three or more times during a one year period can be accessed here: <a href="https://explore-education-statistics.service.gov.uk/data-tables/fast-track/53b32118-528e-4015-777b-08dab100bfc2" target="_blank">https://explore-education-statistics.service.gov.uk/data-tables/fast-track/53b32118-528e-4015-777b-08dab100bfc2</a>. This data is for the year ending 31 March 2018 to the year ending 31 March 2022.</p><p>All placement decisions are subject to the duty in Section 22 of the Children’s Act 1989 that the placement is the most appropriate way to safeguard and promote the child’s welfare. The department needs a range of options for care placements and support that reflects the diverse needs of children in care and care leavers.</p><p>Around 70% of looked-after children are placed with foster carers. For many children who cannot live with their birth parents, foster care offers them the opportunity to experience a stable environment. Looked-after children whose first placement in 2021/22 was with foster carers or placed for adoption were least likely to have more than two placement moves during the year compared with those in other settings.</p><p>Recognising the urgency of action in placement sufficiency, the department will prioritise working with local authorities to recruit more foster carers. This will include pathfinder local recruitment campaigns that build towards a national programme, to help ensure children have access to the right placements at the right time. As the Care Review recommends, the department will focus on providing more support throughout the application process to improve the conversion rate from expressions of interest to approved foster carers.</p><p>Kinship carers are a vital part of our society and play an important role in supporting a child’s development. Councils can offer discretionary financial support to kinship carers. Councils can offer discretionary financial support to kinship carers. We are rapidly working up an ambitious and detailed implementation strategy in response to the reviews and will publish early this year.</p><p>In recognition of rising costs, the government is also providing over £37 billion to help families, targeted to support the most vulnerable.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The department recognises that supported accommodation, which includes supported lodgings, can be the right option for some older children, where it is high quality and where the young person is ready for the level of independence it promotes. We are investing over £140 million to introduce mandatory national standards and Ofsted registration and inspection of providers who accommodate looked-after children and care leavers aged 16 and 17 in supported accommodation.</p><p>In developing these vital reforms, the department has consulted young people with experience of care at every step.</p><p>The department recently published a consultation aimed directly at care-experienced children and young people, which sought their views on proposed new quality standards for supported accommodation, the proposed new requirements on the providers of this provision, and how Ofsted should register, inspect, and take action against providers. This consultation received 60 responses from care-experienced young people, and the department is carefully considering this input. A response will be published in due course. This consultation document can be accessed at: <a href="https://consult.education.gov.uk/regulating-supported-accommodation-team/regulating-supported-accommodation/" target="_blank">https://consult.education.gov.uk/regulating-supported-accommodation-team/regulating-supported-accommodation/</a>.</p><p>This recent consultation builds on years of engagement with care-experienced young people on these reforms, including focus groups which gathered the views of over 220 care-experienced young people, and a previous public consultation which received 69 responses. This continued engagement with children and young people has been invaluable, and has truly helped the department to develop a set of quality standards and accompanying regulatory model which will ensure that supported accommodation can deliver the absolute best for the 16 and 17-year-olds who are ready for the level of independence it brings.</p>
