Staffordshire County Council's Sufficiency Strategy – Homes for Children in our Care 2023-26


Staffordshire County Council’s Sufficiency Strategy – Homes for Children in our Care 2023-26 aims to address the ‘Sufficiency Duty’ of the Local Authority – determined by Section 22G of the Childrens Act 1989 - which requires each local area to ensure sufficient accommodation for children in care.

By the end of 2026, we expect to:

  • See our children living locally in the right home to meet their needs.
  • Eliminate the use of unregistered placements.
  • Increase the number of children and young people returning home if it is safe to do so.
  • The right children in the right place at the right time.  

A governance plan will be introduced to oversee and guide workstreams focusing on our areas of improvement.
