Overview

We are consulting in order to improve our fostering service and how we communicate it to the publc.

Fostering is one of a number of care options that offers children a home when they are unable to live with their birth family. In the UK around 80 per cent of looked after children live with foster families. It involves looking after children with different needs for different periods of time, receiving a weekly foster carer’s allowance.
