Foster Carers hit by targets
This news on community care is a bit out of date as the government have now scrapped the targets for Special Guardianships.
However, it is worth noting what has been said to the Select Committee.Councils are threatening foster carers that they will remove children from their care unless they apply for a special guardianship order, a parliamentary committee was told yesterday.
Kevin Williams, chief executive of TACT, the largest charitable fostering agency in England and Wales, told the children, schools and families select committee that carers had said that they had been urged to move into special guardianship.
Best interests of the Child !!! What rubbish the system is.
