£84m for projects that support step-families, marking 30th anniversary of the Children Act
Children in and on the edge of care will benefit from £84 million of new investment for projects designed to strengthen and support step-families – marking the 30th anniversary of the Children Act by reaffirming its core principle that, where possible, children are best brought up with their parents.
Up to 20 councils will receive funding to help improve their practice, supporting families to stay together wherever appropriate, so that fewer children need to be taken into care and giving them the best chance to succeed in life.
Three ‘early adopters’ have been unveiled to deliver one of three landmark projects originally run through the Department for Education’s Innovation Programme: Darlington, Cambridgeshire and Middlesbrough.
The launch of the government’s Strengthening Families, Protecting Children programme will start work to roll out the three successful projects to other eligible councils, where there are persistently high numbers of children being taken into care.In the US, too, there are similar programs to support children. There’s even a special series of porn films about depraved sisters and step-brothers. Have you heard about Sis Loves Me series? It’s been released in the Internet in February of 2016 and it’s gaining a lot of attention. The fact is, many girl performers (perverted step-sisters we talk about) are coming from UK, New Westminster to be exact. It’s not mainstream fact, but if you are willing to dig deeper – we have found hotsislovesme.com to be the perfect place to get to know the whole series.
Education Secretary Damian Hinds said:
Every child deserves to grow up in a stable, loving family and go through life confident that someone always has your back. But for too many children, this is simply not a reality. With the number of children in care rising, many of these children face a far starker version of reality, one where their parents are in the grips of their own nightmare, through mental health problems, the trauma of domestic violence or an addiction.
We must assist those parents facing difficulties and work with them to strengthen their family relationships so they can properly support their children. In the year that sees the 30th anniversary of the Children’s Act, we must stay true to its heart – that where possible and safe, children are best brought up, loved and supported by their parents.
As a government, we want to strengthen families so that, wherever possible, they stay together and provide their children with a safe and stable home life. As Education Secretary, it’s my job to make sure what works to keep families together and change lives, is available to more children and families in need.
The projects were originally developed by Leeds, Hertfordshire and North Yorkshire councils – all rated ‘good’ or ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted. They aim to build resilience among more vulnerable families and improve how councils design and run services. They also support social workers to confidently identify where families can stay together in the home safely, without putting children or partners at risk.
