The April edition of CYP Now assesses the impact that the coronavirus outbreak is having on the sustainability of children’s charities.

With many charities supporting vulnerable children and families closing shops and reporting a fall in donations while at the same time seeing rising demand, sector leaders call for action by the government to provide financial support.

As the deadline looms for responses to the consultation on new measures to restrict the use of unregulated accommodation for children in care, some experts believe the proposals don’t go far enough.

The special report takes an in-depth look at how children’s services departments and providers are using technology to improve how they support vulnerable children and young people. Practice examples include: how one system has linked education and social care data to improve transparency; the use of virtual reality technology to support young people in care; and tech-based solutions to help young people overcome anxieties.
