In addition to Parliamentary and press coverage and further reading, this pack contains the  Library briefing on children placed in residential care not close to their family,  Commons Briefing paper CBP-7560, including:

  • the current law on distant placements, including those outwith of the local authority that has responsibility for the child;
  • recent reports on the issue, including those by the Education Select Committee, the All-Party Parliamentary Groups for Runaway and Missing Children and Adults, and for Looked After Children and Care Leavers, and Ofsted;
  • details of the ongoing review of children’s residential care, led by Sir Martin Narey and expected to report in May 2016.

This is a devolved matter, so this paper considers the position in England only.
