Education Secretary Gavin Williamson announced an independent review of children’s social on Friday 15th January. The review will set out to reform the system, improving the lives of England’s most vulnerable children so they experience the benefits of a stable, loving home.
Josh MacAlister, who founded the social work charity Frontline in 2013, will lead the review.

The review will reshape how children interact with the care system, looking at the process from referral through to becoming looked after. It will address major challenges such as the increase in numbers of looked after children. They have published Terms of Reference outlining the purpose, scope, objective and outputs of the independent review of children's social care.
