This document presents the findings of a call for evidence to develop models of care and care pathways to support the mental health and wellbeing of looked after children.

Together with an Expert Working Group of professionals, policy makers and young people, the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) has worked since March 2016 to develop care pathways, models of care and quality principles to help improve access to high quality services to address the mental health and wellbeing needs of children in care, children who have ceased to be looked after under special guardianship orders or through being adopted from care, and care leavers.
