Note about terminology: this hub refers in different contexts to children in care, in the care system, care-experienced children, those with lived experience of care and children who are looked after. We also continue to refer to a ‘looked-after child’ or ‘looked-after children’ to reflect the legislation and Department for Education guidance. We will keep this terminology under review.
