Children in care total rises 12% in four years

More young people in care. This is a very disturbing stat.

My mind is filled with lots of questions about how these young people are going to be supported and cared for in an increasingly financially pressured market, with scandals such as Rotherham coming up in the media although not directly linked with young people in care, it highlights the pressure put on services to protect the most vulnerable. Do we depend too much on the state to protect?
