House of Commons to debate foster care

Debate scheduled for 14 March 2018

On 14 March 2018, there will be a Westminster Hall debate on Foster Care. The Member sponsoring the debate is Bill Esterson MP.

The House of Commons Library will produce a briefing or material for the debate and this webpage will be updated when it is made available.

In the meantime, the Library paper, Key issues in fostering (July 2017), provides background on various issues surrounding foster care, including capacity of the foster care system, working conditions for foster carers and the relationships between fostering providers. This is supported by statistical information, accurate at the date of publication. For that briefing paper, click here.
