Our pledge to you

Sometimes a child or young person is unable to live with their parents. There are many reasons this happens. Some children and young people may have been abused or neglected, others may have complex needs or disabilities, or there may be a family crisis which means that the child or young person's parents are unable to care for them. 

Our 'Let's Take Action Group' which represents the voice of children in our care, developed the 'perfect corporate parent' framework, which was used to co-design our corporate parenting pledge:
