Identifying improvements for the children in care sector

Monday, June 3, 2013

Meg Munn MP was recently invited to chair two sessions in a seminar as part of the Westminster Education Forum’s programme titled ‘Supporting children in care fostering and adoption, children’s homes and successful transition to adulthood.’

The first session looked at the provision, safety and regulation of children’s homes in England including an address from a senior advisor at Ofsted. The second session focussed on education for children in care, including the support provided for children leaving the care system and how to best raise achievement.

Prior to chairing these sessions, Meg took part as a member of the audience in a discussion about improving the fostering and adoption system. She asked the panel how politicians can best measure good and bad practice in the care system and whether data crunching is useful? A representative from Coram (the UK’s first ever children’s charity) responded that whilst numbers are important, the data about adoption success or failure rates need to improve and there should also be a focus on outcomes.

Meg said:

“It is hugely important that politicians and professionals have these discussions in order to identify where improvements can be made in the sector or in legislation. It is particularly important considering that the Children & Families Bill is currently passing through Parliament.”

Meg is chair of the Child Protection All-Party Parliamentary Group which aims to raise the profile of child protection in Parliament, and investigate policy matters in this area by interrogating experts in the field. The Westminster Education Forum aims to provide an environment for MPs, policymakers and government agencies to engage in discussion on education policy.
