Greater Manchester Combined Authority will lead an alpha looking at improving data and evidence on children in care. This project is a continuation of the discovery funded in round 1 of the Local Digital Fund.

Improving data and evidence on children in care

Children in care often have poor lifetime outcomes arising from neglect, abuse and trauma. Improving the quality of that care and investing in early intervention and prevention can improve life chances and generate wider benefits, including reduced criminal justice costs and better educational outcomes.
