Hello, and welcome to the Spring consortium
The children’s social care innovation programme seeks to support the development, testing and sharing of effective ways of supporting children who need help from children’s social care services. 70 projects are currently being supported by the programme. The list of projects supported to date can be found here
There is approximately £200m committed to all of the Department’s innovation and improvement work over the next four years. This will initially focus on two priority areas; rethinking children’s social care, and rethinking the transition into adulthood for adolescents in the social care system.
