Re: Kids Company
Following the closure of Kids Company, Southwark Council has been undertaking a great deal of work to make sure that vulnerable children and young people do not suffer because of the closure.
As you know I am very concerned that Southwark Council has the resources it needs to be able to protect these children and young people.
I am writing now to ask what additional resources are being made available to Southwark Council.
I look forward to hearing from you.
