The Fostering Network has published a report on the findings of the Muslim Fostering Project which explored the experiences of Muslim children in foster care and that of Muslim foster carers in the UK. Recommendations include: Ofsted to include mandatory recording of child’s faith or religion on the annual fostering statistics return to ensure a comprehensive and standardised approach to capturing this data; and fostering services to fully explore a child’s identity, including their faith or religion, and document this information in the child’s care plan and database.
