Every Child Leaving Care Matters (ECLCM)

Reason for signing

  • Being a child's parent is the most serious of responsibilities & doesn't stop when the child leaves school. Support and care is perhaps needed most of all by young people from 16 to 21, the age of most children leaving care & the communities' collective parental responsibility. Working with children's social services showed me just how important this change in the law would be.
