CoramBAAF position statement on fostering and the care system

After a period of consultation CoramBAAF has now finalised our position statement on fostering and the care system.    This sets out the need for a properly funded care system where placement choice is determined by the needs of individual children and young people.   The statement identifies legislative change that would help existing best practice to become the sector norm, and offers radical suggestions for better achieving permanence inside and outside the care system.
