Vulnerable children: Education and health ministers to be quizzed by Lords committee

What plans does the government have for a national strategy to tackle child vulnerability?

That is one of the likely questions when peers hear from Will Quince, Minister for Children and Families at the Department for Education (DfE), and Maggie Throup, Minister for Vaccines and Public Health at the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) on Wednesday 3 November at 3.00 pm, as the Public Services Committee concludes its inquiry into vulnerable children and public services.

The committee will hear also from Fran Oram, Director for Children’s Social Care, Practice and Workforce, DfE and Liz Ketch, Director Early Years, Children and Families, DHSC
