Children and young people have voiced their views on what the new National Minimum Standards for children's social care should cover.

Children on care standards, published by Children's Rights Director for England, Dr Roger Morgan, sets out the views of 433 children and young people consulted at the annual Children's Rights Director conference.

When asked what they thought should happen if a child or young person isn't being looked after properly, they proposed that the child should be moved elsewhere. However, they stressed that a child or young person should not be moved without their consent. The also said that care placements should be designed so that brothers and sisters can stay together.

Dr Roger Morgan, Children's Rights Director for England, said: "This report contains the views children gave us, without adult views being added. The children and young people have told me that they want to be made aware of the National Minimum standards and how it applies to their settings and want to be treated fairly and with respect.

The report sets out the main rules that children have proposed in relation to safeguarding, workforce issues, administrative requirements, complaints procedures, privacy, children's rights, valuing diversity and behaviour management which I hope government officials will find useful when writing the new rules."

More information, including the report, can be found on the Ofsted website, www.ofsted.gov.uk.
