Education pledge for children in care.
A pioneering partnership has been launched, bringing together specially designated teachers in schools, educational psychologists, parents, social workers, foster carers and youth workers to help the 800 children in city care.
The project builds on work already done such as C-Net, a pounds 1.1m scheme to give every child in care access to computers and the internet.
Cllr Jeremy Chowings, executive member for social care and health, said: ``Young people in care can face problems which the rest of us can only imagine, and sometimes school life suffers. We want to change that.''
