Barnardo's is pleased to hear the announcement in the Budget from Chancellor Philip Hammond that £84m will be invested over five years to expand programmes for children in care.
Barnardo’s Chief Executive, Javed Khan said:
"Children’s services are reaching breaking point, so we welcome this much needed cash injection in today’s Budget.
But children and families desperately need support much earlier – to prevent them going into the care system.
We are working with government, local authorities and others to develop long-term strategic partnerships around the country, co-designing and co-delivering services, so that young people get the help they need when they need it."
