Newsnight – ‘Care crisis’ Sent away children are easy targets

Sharing is caring!

September 17th 2019

Newsnight gave great coverage to yesterday’s report ‘No Place at Home‘ by the All Party Parliamentary Group for Runaway and Missing Children and Adults.  The report found that growing numbers of vulnerable children in care are being sent to live many miles from home where they are being targetted by criminal drug gangs and paedophiles.

You can watch Newsnight’s special report below.

 

We need the Government to commit to developing an Emergency Action Plan which will give councils more funding to ensure that there is a sufficient number of good quality, regulated and inspected care placements where children need them and put an end to this national scandal.

Those interested can read further coverage in The Times, The Guardian, The Telegraph, The Daily Mail and Huffington Post.
