Young people in need of residential care will be able to stay locally after several north and east London boroughs were awarded £835k to be put towards a new initiative led by Havering Council.

The sum was awarded by the Department for Education (DfE) to the North East London commissioning partnership - which incorporates the London boroughs of Havering, Redbridge, Newham, Hackney, City of London, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest and Barking and Dagenham.

Havering council will lead the development of the new collaborative model - which will support four to five young people aged between 11 and 17 from each borough who need residential care.

Havering doesn’t currently have a local residential care facility but the collaborative programme will ensure children can stay in their own or a local borough.

Residential care providers will receive a payment by results contract as an incentive to provide high level support for all young people.
