Evidence to Education Committee’s Inquiry into Children’s Social Care

    PFAN produced evidence to the above inquiry in 2024. We were concerned that the new government strategy would increase the risk-averse culture which has been responsible for increases of the number of investigations rising by 152% since 2010 and the child rescue culture that has been responsible for a 60% increase in the number of children separated from their parents. We make practical suggestions for changes to avoid worse outcomes.
