The Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices and foster care

You are here


The Fostering Network will be reading the Taylor Review of Modern Working Practices with interest, especially in regards to if, or how, its findings and recommendations might be applied to foster care.

There is currently a lot of discussion about how foster carers can be better remunerated, supported, trained and respected, with employment rights being at the heart of this discussion. Given the vital nature of these conversations and the importance of finding a sustainable solution for all foster carers, we are sure that those who are overseeing the national fostering stocktake in England and the care review in Scotland will be taking this report into account when making their recommendations.
