Continuing to Care: the Californian Connection

Author: Emily Warren

In January 2017, Emily Warren travelled to California to work with the senior leadership team of the state social services department. California was embarking on a historic and radical reform programme for looked after children, known as the ‘Foster Care Revolution’. The purpose of Emily’s Fellowship was to look at best practice in early years care, and so the reforms in California provided her with the perfect opportunity to observe, to learn and to be part of an exciting and challenging reform agenda.
