An independent review of fostering, commissioned by the department, and published in January 2018, made a number of recommendations on how to improve provision of foster parents. The Education Select Committee, in their report published in December last year, also made recommendations. Both reports are attached.

The government is carefully considering the recommendations of these reports, and will publish responses to both in the spring.
