The Department for Education (DfE) launched the Children’s Social Care Innovation Programme to act as a catalyst for developing more effective ways of supporting vulnerable children. The programme is seeking to inspire whole system change to improve the life chances for children receiving support from the social care system, to provide stronger incentives and mechanisms for innovation, experimentation and replication of successful new approaches and to increase value for money. Areas of focus include rethinking children’s social work, support for adolescents in, or on the edge of care, mental health, child sexual exploitation and many other areas of children’s social care.
The Rees Centre is acting as the Evaluation Coordinator for the entire programme.
