For many children, they won’t be spending Easter with their families; instead, through no fault of their own, they will be spending it in care. There are over 70,000 children in care of local authorities, according to data from March 2016. Unfortunately, that’s the largest number of children in the system there’s even been.
Children enter the care system for lots of different reasons, but whatever the reason, it’s always linked to the fact they weren’t receiving proper care.
There is no doubt that good foster care makes a difference to a child’s life.
In one recent study by Bristol University, researchers found that children in foster care achieve better educational results, compared to those who remain in troubled families. The longer these vulnerable children stayed in care the better they performed academically. When questioned, these children said this was because they felt ‘more safe and secure’ and that they truly mattered to their foster parents.
