Welcome to another week. These are the child welfare items that should be right on your radar:
- Troubled Families Programme gets an additional £165 million funding for 2021-2022, and a possible change of name (please for the love of all that is sensible, change this project’s offensive and meaningless name)
- Public Services Committee published first report on how public services performed during the Covid-19 pandemic (and its findings are the usual suspects – poor support for users, lack of cooperation between services and no effort to collect feedback from families and children)
- Family courts look to keep courts up and running for ‘business as usual’ by making hearings Covid-safe. (Researching Reform first used the phrase Covid-safe in relation to courts, and we’re glad to see it’s catching on).
