You may know that the research team at Ofsted are currently completing a research project about matching in foster care. This is the first phase of wider research into good decisions for children in care or on the edge of care.  FosterTalk is a member of the expert advisory panel for this research and you can find more information about the research in this blog by Yvette Stanley, National Director for Social Care at Ofsted.


As part of this research project, we have launched a survey for foster carers who are currently looking after a child/children, as well as a survey for children and young people currently in care and care-experienced young people and adults.
