Looked After Children

The term ‘looked-after children’ is used to describe those children and young people who cannot live with their families, whether as the result of a Care Order or a voluntary arrangement between their parents and a friend or family member. This includes when a child stays with a member of their immediate family such as aunts and uncles or grandparents, and private fostering arrangements, in which the child stays with a more distant relative, a family friend, or an appropriate acquaintance.

Southend has a Pledge to looked after children about the services and support they will receive.
