'The key role that foster carers play in shaping children’s lives and futures is now being recognised. However, the demands and expectations placed upon them have increased significantly over recent years, as they work in ever more complex situations. Carers’ need for a good understanding of the legal and policy context has never been greater, and so a book which provides such a clear and comprehensive guide to the law is very timely. I know that many foster carers will welcome this useful tool, and others will enjoy the case studies and the links with daily life in fostering households.'
- Andrea Warman, Deputy Chief Executive /Programmes Director, The Who Cares? Trust.
'A very readable, practical and clear guide to the minefield of regulations relating to fostering which I recommend as reading for all involved in fostering. This book is particularly useful for foster carers who need to understand the complex nature of the law in a straightforward way using case examples.'
- Jim Bond, Foster Carer and Chair, The Fostering Network
'An extremely useful resource for foster parents and those who work with them. All of the foster parents I work with felt that this would be an invaluable resource for them in their work'
