When the DfE was asking for views, we consulted with the young people in our care about other changes they would want to see. For example, their suggestion that reviews should be less frequent after a year in placement, has also been incorporated into the new regulations.
While the Government did not adopt all of TACT’s recommendations, we hope that these changes will lead to increased security and stability for young people in foster care.
