This is a call for evidence to inform a comprehensive understanding of the current fostering system in England. The Department for Education want to understand what is working well and why, where improvements are needed to achieve better outcomes for children and identify areas where further research is needed.
Sir Martin Narey and Mark Owers have been appointed by the Secretary of State for Education to conduct a National Fostering Stocktake. As a first step, they are seeking views on the current state of foster care in England and how the prospects of children in care might be improved through changes to fostering.
