Money money money!!!
We have looked at the amount of pcoket money that children in care are given. We realsied that children in children's homes were getting less than children in Foster Care. We met with managers and they have made changes based on our findings and it is now fair.
We also did a city wide colsultation with other children in care into Independence Allowance and found and the money that children in care and care leavers. We found that some young peopel get it and some don't even know what it is. We think every child in care should get Independence Allowance. The amount of money children in care get is going to be re-written so it is clearer and fairer. We are going to continue to work with manager to check this is fair and tell them what we think of the new policy.
Let us know your thoughts!
