The Fairer Fostering Partnership believes that we need to build relationships in any system that we envision for children who cannot live with their birth parents. The current social care system does not support this and, in some cases, even discourages it.
Clear examples of this are when foster carers are not given full delegated authority for the children and young people they are looking after, or they do not receive appropriate financial support to do so.
We believe that children, young people and care experienced adults need to be consulted and listened to and given the power to co-design, co-create, and co-produce the services they are entitled to.
We also believe that as a sector there is much expertise that is not being tapped or even considered by Government which could drive innovative change.
To this end we have submitted our ideas to the Independent Review of Children’s Social Care (IRCSC).

NB The Fairer Fostering Partnership submitted each idea separately to the IRCSC via the online call for ideas portal.
