The Fostering Network Wales has launched a report into the views of foster carers regarding what they believe is needed to raise the ambitions and educational outcomes of the young people in their care.

The report, entitled What is Needed to Enable Looked After Children to Achieve in Education? was commissioned by Welsh Government and follows consultations and a survey with foster carers carried out by The Fostering Network.

In response to the launch of a consultation on Draft Decision Making Guidance for Foster Carers in Scotland, Sara Lurie, director of The Fostering Network in Scotland, said: ‘We are delighted to see the Scottish Government’s draft decision making guidance, and thank all those who have worked so hard in drafting it.
