The law governing decisions about children in care in England is soon to change dramatically. The Department for Education has created a two-tier care system which we strongly oppose because of the harm and suffering it will cause to children.
From 9 September 2021, for the first time ever, the law in England discriminates on the basis of age when decisions are made about where children in care live.
Article 39 children’s rights charity is legally challenging these discriminatory changes through a judicial review, which is currently listed to be heard in the High Court in December. The AoCPP stands with them and has pledged its full support to this campaign.
