Think Local Act Personal (TLAP) Jargon Buster

An organisation such as a council that is responsible for children who have been taken into care. The council takes on the responsibility of a child's parent, and is expected to do many of the things a good parent would, such as providing a stable place to live, ensuring a child has a good education and helping them prepare for adult life.
