The Fostering Network conducts, commissions and advises on research to influence policy at a national level.
Research

Collating the views of foster carers, every three years we conduct a survey to find out what key issues need to be addressed through our policies and campaigns.

Every year we survey local authorities to monitor how much money is being provided to foster carers to cover the cost of looking after a child.

We are conducting research into the retention and recruitment of foster carers in England with the aim of achieving a diverse and stable foster care workforce.
