The children's minister, Tim Loughton, has set up the Tell Tim web page, where you can directly send him your thoughts about the care system. He has asked to hear your thoughts about what works and what doesn’t, and your ideas about changes that would make a difference.
Video produced in response to comments received is featured on Tell Tim. Go to the website to view the video and get in touch with the children’s minister.
Clear, thorough advice on appropriate and safe behaviours for adults working with children in paid or unpaid capacities can be found in Guidance for safer working practice for adults who work with children and young people in education settings. The document is stored on the Children England website.
The following links provide insight into the laws, legislation and guidance that govern the care received by young people and care leavers that are looked after by Salford Children’s Services.
The links provide information on how acts of parliament shape the care package received by young people and care leavers.
