Roth D, Aziz R, Ashley C and Lindley B. 2013

More children are raised in family and friends care in London (in the main by their grandparents or older siblings when they cannot live with their parents) than in any other region of England or the UK. This is the first study that specifically examines the circumstances of family and friends carers in London, and the children they are raising, including levels of financial and material deprivation. It recommends measures for local and national government to improve policy and practice for these children and carers.
