On Sunday 25 July, the largest closed-road running event in London since the March 2020 lockdown took place through central London. Welcare was proudly represented by one of our most loyal and hard-working supporters, Sue Floyd, and two friends Queen and Ngozi who all represented Welcare and raised funds for our work.
The head of an independent review has described English children’s services system as “a tower of Jenga held together by Sellotape”. According to Josh MacAlister the system needs major reform and investment, and is currently "bureaucratic, risk-averse, financially strained, and over-focused on investigating potential abuse and neglect at the expense of providing practical support for struggling families."
