The Foster Care Review was established by the Scottish Government to assess a range of potential reforms, and provide direction on a number of policy questions. The proposals (and issues) put to the Review related to three specific areas of fostering:

(a) the organisation and management of foster carers

(b) carers’ learning and development

(c) the financial and practical support offered to carers.

The report also includes details of the Review process, and the results of its formal engagement with the sector.
