Foster Care in England A Review for the Department for Education by Sir Martin Narey and Mark Owers

 Every child growing up needs and deserves the love, care and support of a family. For the thousands of children in foster care, it is no different, if not even more acute. That is why I welcome this review of fostering and the candid way it shines a light on what being in foster care feels like for a child. It examines issues such as the importance of stability and building consistent and trusted relationships – issues I’ve raised before, and which we at the Children’s Commissioner office are now measuring in the Stability Index – and the vital role of carers in helping children to build confidence, develop talents and be ambitious for their future.
