In May 2022 the independent review of children’s social care published its final report on the children’s social care system in England1.
The review was commissioned by the government in 2019, and started work in 2021. Evidence was collected from public engagement, evidence gathering exercises and visits to local areas, with the aim of identifying recommendations for the improvement of the system.
