Narey report published: Residential Care in England Report

The review into the quality and use of children's homes concluded that standards are generally high despite relatively little investment going into developing best practice, but that councils have failed to deliver sufficient "value" for the amount spent on placements. 

Narey says there is little scope to reduce children’s homes and that their role is misunderstood, the challenges of the children they care for underestimated and the contribution they make too easily dismissed.

“There is a very real and unmet demand for the greater use of children’s homes as part of an initial assessment for older children when first coming into care, and those on the edge of care.”
