Making decisions for a child in foster care

Why should foster carers be involved in decisions about a child’s care?

In many cases, foster carers know the child they are looking after better than any other professional. As they are responsible for their day-to-day care, foster carers are likely to have a unique understanding of the child’s needs and preferences (likes and dislikes) and the most up-to-date information about them and their lives.
