The underpinning principle of Rotherham’s approach is that every child has the right to a family life. If living in a family home is not an option, the Council will make every effort to ensure that a child lives in a children’s residential home that replicates family life as closely as possible.

With this principle in mind Rotherham Council has made a significant investment in children’s residential services, to ensure more of our children in care are placed in Rotherham, close to their families, schools and local communities.
