Charity claims myths may cause foster care crisis

September 9, 2013 8:15 am

It has been claimed by a charity that existing myths about foster care are likely to result in a crisis in the service in the UK. It was found by a survey for Action for Children that some 10% of adults did not know that fostering meant providing temporary care. Many adults surveyed confused fostering with adoption.  Many people also thought certain groups were barred from fostering – with 54% thinking over-55s were excluded; 16% that men could not foster and one in three that gay people would not be accepted.
