ADCS response to The Fostering Network report

Charlotte Ramsden, Chair of the ADCS Health, Care and Additional Needs Policy Committee, said:

“Foster care is the heart of our care system and, when done well, can change a child’s life. Over three quarters of children in local authority care are placed with foster carers. As the number of children coming into care continues to increase so too does our need for foster carers.

“This report raises concerns about austerity and how reductions to council budgets are visibly impacting on the services we provide for vulnerable children, young people and their families. This issue is worthy of further and urgent debate.”

ENDS
