Ahead of next week’s General Election we are launching our manifesto, asking policymakers and public servants to bring the needs of children in care and care leavers to the forefront of social policy.
At TACT we believe that the voice of children and young people should always be heard in the design of policy for children in care. As such, the proposals included in our manifesto were shaped by the children, young people and foster carers at TACT, and are designed to help the state fulfil its responsibility as corporate parent to so many vulnerable children.
In addition to our manifesto, TACT’s Senior Policy Advisor Jasmine Ali has produced a briefing that looks at the manifesto commitments made by each of the main UK wide political parties on issues pertinent to children in care and care leavers: early years, schools, further education, and children’s services.
The briefing covers the manifesto pledges on children’s services from the Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green Parties, including the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru relevant manifesto proposals.
