Importance of Sibling Contact for Children in Care

On July the 6th, I made a speech in the Lords calling for children in care to have more sibling contact. This is important as children who have regular contact with their siblings tend to do better in terms of outcomes.

You can see my speech and the debate in full here.

It is absolutely the case that relationships with siblings are often the most enduring that those children have. Indeed, as we have just heard from the noble Lord, Lord Warner, they can be as important to children as the relationship with their parents, particularly if they have supported each other through difficult times.
