Misguided efficiency focus 'trading' the futures of the UK's most vulnerable children, says nef analyis

nef's research suggests that the Government and some local authorities are claiming to endorse a 'Child-Centred' approach while making cuts that betray a lack of understanding of what young people in care really need and value. And as nef's research shows, this lack of understanding will inevitably lead to long-term social and economic costs. Behind the dramatic headlines about failing care homes and delinquent young people, good providers of residential care services face being pushed out in the drive to cut costs.
