By Di Hart and Alison Williams
In spite of considerable attention in recent years, there continues to be a gap between the outcomes of looked after children and those of their peers.
With an emphasis on practical tools and training materials, this second edition will support the implementation of corporate parenting across the local authority by focusing on the leadership and commitment that members and officers can provide.
The book is essential reading for all local councillors and assists elected members and council officers to ensure that they fulfil their role as corporate parents.
It sets out the responsibilities of a corporate parent, together with practical exercises and briefings to support effective practice.
