Defending children’s social care rights

Article 39 is one of 31 organisations opposing the exemption clauses in the Children and Social Work Bill, which will allow the removal of council’s statutory duties towards vulnerable children and care leavers area-by-area.

More than 140 individual experts, including many parents and carers of disabled children, are also calling for the exemption clauses to be removed from the Bill.

The Bill reaches Report Stage in the House of Lords on 18 October. We are working hard to persuade Peers to join together to defend children’s social care rights.
