Ofsted has published a report looking at what children and young people told them about their experiences of living in children’s homes or living with foster carers in England. Findings from questionnaire responses from 1,527 children and young people living in a children’s home, and 1,630 children and young people living with foster carers include an increase in the number of children saying they had been helped to understand why they came into care – this was greater for those living in children’s homes.
