Revised Special Guardianship Order (SGO) financial support policy
To approve a revised Special Guardianship
Order (SGO) financial policy to increase the numbers of children
that achieve permanency outside of the looked after system.
Our aim is that all children should grow up in a family who loves and cares for them. For children who are looked after and are settled in foster families who are able and willing to commit to caring for them long term and SGO provides an alternative to remaining looked after.
The revised policy provides and enhanced financial offer to foster carers to support them in caring for children outside of the looked after system.
