Children in care 'separated from siblings'


Nearly three quarters of children taken into care are separated from their siblings, according a Children's Care Monitor report for Ofsted.

The report has also highlighted concerns about children being moved to new placements with little warning, and with the education and employment prospects for those leaving care.

However 88% of those questioned thought their current care overall was good or very good.

Roger Morgan, Ofsted Children's Rights Director and author of the Children's Care Monitor annual report, explains the findings.
