Foster Care Motion, 14/05/12 [S]

Motion lodged before the Scottish Parliament on 14 May 2012 by Mary Fee (Lab) on foster care fortnight.

The full text of the motion reads:

That the Parliament highlights that 14 to 27 May 2012 is Foster Care Fortnight, an annual campaign to raise the profile for foster carers throughout the United Kingdom; understands that every 22 minutes a child enters care and needs a foster family; notes that an estimated 8,750 foster carers are needed in 2012 alone, and calls on families across Scotland to look at fostering children who need a stable, loving home.
