Children’s homes inquiry: Commons Education Committee

The Commons Education Committee has held the first public evidence session in its inquiry into children's homes. It questioned former Children's Commissioner Anne Longfield, Josh MacAlister, Lead Reviewer on the Independent Review of Children's Social Care and Lord Adonis, who has lived experience of children's residential care.

The inquiry will examine a number of areas including educational outcomes and destinations, the quality of support provided by children's homes, the use of unregulated provision, out-of-area placements, rates of criminalisation, the sufficiency of children's home places, and the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic.
