The Education Committee has launched an inquiry into fostering in England. Issues which will be addressed include: recruitment and retention of foster carers; stability of foster care placements; foster care for young people with specific or challenging needs and its relationship with residential care; the involvement of young people in their care.


Submit your views through the fostering inquiry page.

Deadline for written submissions is Friday 25 November 2016.
