Publisher Description

Introduction Sixty-eight per cent of looked after children in England (National Statistics, 2005) are accommodated in foster care. Despite policy strategies to increase the role of permanent placements, for example the Adoption Act 2002 with provision for Special Guardianship, many children still spend long periods in foster care settings. The months and sometimes years spent in a foster placement can create a bond between carers and young people that becomes an important part of a child's life; foster carers are present at first steps, first days at school and numerous other milestones.
