Edward Timpson has today announced that the government will be setting aside £30 million for its innovation programme.
Speaking to Community Care, Mr Timpson said:
'We're looking for your boldest and most adventurous ideas to rise to the huge challenges we face; to drive better outcomes and better value for money. Ideas that have the potential to spark and spread innovation across the system.
Proposals from all areas of children's social care are welcome, but as a starting point, we will focus on two areas: rethinking children's social work, and rethinking support for vulnerable adolescents in care or on the edge of care.'
