‘My boyfriend was killed in the care system’
           

The
Children’s Commissioner for England is calling for regulation of
supported and semi-supported accommodation for children aged 16 and
above. About 5,000 looked-after children in England are in this kind of
accommodation – a 70% rise in a decade.

Currently, these homes are
unregulated and unregistered, meaning there is no national inspection
regime like Ofsted setting consistent standards and safety. Anyone with a
DBS check can set one up.
