Children in Care Residential Commissioning Plan
The report provides recommendations which will deliver better
outcomes for Children in Care by reducing the number of Out of Area
(OOA) placements and Independent Fostering Agencies and by
increasing residential sufficiency within the City.
The report provides four options to respond to the needs of Children in Care identified through a gap analysis. The different cost implications and analysis of each option are outlined in the paper.
The options have been identified as part of the overall Children Service’s Placement Review.
