Place of publication:
London

In April 2009 the Children, Schools and Families Committee published its Third Report of Session 2008-2009, Looked-after Children. In December 2010 the Committee received oral evidence on the new coalition Government's policy on looked-after children, and it was agreed that a further, detailed response would be provided. That further response is included in this publication as an appendix. It sets out the new Government's response to the main recommendations in the Select Committee's report and what it has done since taking office, reflecting the new Government's approach. It states that improving the lives of children in care and strengthening the adoption system are priorities for the coalition Government, and that the Government strongly supports the Select Committee's view that "outcomes and experiences of young people in care who have been 'looked after' remain poor". It uses the term children in care to include all children being looked after by a local authority, including those subject to care orders and those being looked after on a voluntary basis in agreement with their parents.

The national strategy for self-directed support in Scotland has been developed to help take forward the personalisation of health and social care services in Scotland. Following consultation, an implementation plan will be developed to identify timescales and targets for the strategy's short, medium and long term goals. The key themes of the strategy are: values and principles that are based on human rights and equality legislation, ownership and leadership reflecting the importance of leadership at all levels, supporting choice and control through a shift to outcomes focused assessment, review and commissioning, resources, and measuring progress through engagement with regulatory bodies to ensure the principles of self-directed support are understood.
