Abstract

This is the final report of Scotland’s Foster Care Review, which ran from December 2012 to November 2013. The Review was established by the Scottish Government to assess a range of potential reforms, and provide direction on a number of policy questions. The proposals (and issues) put to the Review related to three specific areas of fostering: (a) the organisation and management of foster carers; (b) carers’ learning and development; and (c) the financial and practical support offered to carers. This report presents the Review’s conclusions and recommendations (in respect to each specific proposal) and a summary of its discussions. The report also includes details of the Review process, and the results of its formal engagement with the sector.
