We believe it’s vital for foster carers to have a say in decisions that affect their lives. That’s we work hard to ensure that your voice is heard as much as any other childcare professional.
Our website will keep you up to date with the latest consultations taking place on fostering related issues, so that you can comment on proposed changes that may affect you or the children and young people you care for.
We also work closely with policy-making teams across the UK to share your opinions and concerns with the people who make important decisions on your behalf.
