In the UK, a child comes into care every 20 minutes needing a foster family: that’s around 1,000 children a month. If you’re thinking of fostering a child, you’ll have never been in greater demand.
2017 is considered a crucial year for fostering, because the government are planning to put more emphasis on the issues facing foster carers, including improving the level of support they receive.
A report by The Fostering Network has found half of foster carers aren’t given a training plan for the next 12 months. A third also reported they weren’t treated as an equal by the child’s social worker. It’s therefore highly important to choose a fostering agency that supports you at all times.
