This event details recent efforts to co-develop a best practice charter, aimed at creating meaningful change for parents in and leaving local authority care. Co-produced with care experienced parents, practitioners and policy makers, the charter is aimed at Corporate Parents; professionals with responsibility for supporting young people in state care. In Wales, corporate parents are directed to seek the same outcomes for children in local authority care as any good parent would seek for their own child. This event shares the best practice charter and wider resources developed about this important topic including discussion on research conduction in this area by Dr Louise Roberts. 

The webinar formed part of the annual Economic and Social Research Council’s Festival of Social Science.

Presenters: Dr. Louise Roberts and Rachael Vaughan, Cardiff University.
