TACT Welcomes New Children’s Minister

Author: TACT Communications

TACT welcomes Robert Goodwill as the new children’s minister and looks forward to working with him.

We are committed to helping him drive forward the fostering stocktake and making the care leavers covenant a meaningful set of services, support and entitlements, such as free university tuition, for our young people leaving care.

We are also keen that he addresses the two-tier service that sees unaccompanied asylum seeking children disadvantaged when leaving care and hope that his experience as immigration minister will put him in a position of strength when negotiating with the Home Office on this issue.
