Wirral currently have 824 Children Looked After (CLA), and we want to ensure they have the right support with their emotional wellbeing. In December 2019 Wirral Children’s Commissioning carried out The Art of the Possible consultation, to explore what support for CLA should look like. We gathered a wealth of information that helped shape the service design. CLA told us they want consistent people in their lives and not to have to relate their story again and again, professionals including foster carers, told us they wanted to be better supported to help the young people they work with. Participants told us that placement stability, and stability in general needed to be prioritised. We heard that a non-clinical young person friendly space was needed, and that young people wanted choice. As a result, we have designed a specification that will form part of a wider approach to how we provide support.
