Almost half of children not told why they are in care

A survey of more than 2,600 children has found that almost half of four- to seven-year-olds in care have not had the reason for them being there fully explained to them. The survey was carried out by Coram Voice and the University of Bristol. It also found that a third of eight- to 11-year-olds felt they hadn’t had the reason they were in care explained to them, and 18% of 11-18 year olds.
