With one year to go to the close of the EU Settlement Scheme, thousands of children are at risk of being left without status after Brexit, and the Home Office and local authorities need a comprehensive plan to ensure children are not left in limbo from 1 July 2021. That is the key conclusion of the 'Children left out? Securing children’s rights to stay in the UK beyond Brexit' report published today by Coram Children’s Legal Centre (CCLC).
The closure of childcare settings as part of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic has caused immediate issues for many families as they struggle to balance work and childcare, Coram policy experts have advised in written evidence published today.
The new Parliament has to make the needs of children and young people a priority after an extended period in the nation’s political life when their interests and voice have been neglected – that is the key message in the Call for Change published today by Coram.
Children’s Minister Vicky Ford has announced that the Department for Education will renew funding for Coram Voice to continue to deliver Always Heard, the national advocacy helpline and safety net for care experienced children and young people (0-25 years old) in England.
