Barnardo's has issued a statement welcoming the announcement that the Government is to consult over changes to fostering and adoption procedures.
Janet Grauberg, UK Director of Strategy for Barnardo’s said:
“As an adoption and fostering agency Barnardo’s agrees it makes absolute sense to allow children to be placed in a foster placement with potential adoptive parents.
“Children can often be moved from one emergency foster placement to another during the wait for an adoption order to be made or while the prospective adoptive parents wait to be approved.
“Anything that prevents these vulnerable children being passed from pillar to post and instead offers them the chance of stability and security is of the utmost importance.”
