Call for more foster carers to improve stability for children in care, 13/05/13 [S]

With the publication of new survey results, the Fostering Network has warned that children are being moved too many times between foster families because of the need for more foster carers across the UK.

The survey found that in the last two years 3 in 5 foster carers (61 per cent) have cared for children who have previously had two or more moves between homes. Two in 5 (43 per cent) have looked after at least one child who has been moved four or more times, while 1 in 10 (11 per cent) have cared for children who have had 10 or more moves before coming to live with them.

For full details see the Fostering Network website.
