Fostering in the political manifestos

Fostering Network had meeting with all major parties recently and according to them, Green Party and Liberal Democrats have chosen to make a commitment to fostering in their election manifesto.

The Green Party said on page 28 of their manifesto: “do more for young people who have no family; a basic first step would be to pay foster carers a salary, costing about £0.9 billion a year.”

The Liberal Democrats said on page 61 of their manifesto: “Tackle delay and instability in foster care, with better support and training for foster carers, including on mental health issues”

This acknowledges the need of more foster carers in the coming years for children who need a better life and good family home. If you have a spare bedroom and would like to become a foster carer call us now or complete our online form.
