Being a foster carer is one of the most difficult roles one can assume. But how well are foster carers doing? What is your opinion on the family who looked after your child?

The results

We didn’t know what to expect from the result of this poll. It’s common to hear stories of deplorable behaviour from foster carers, but that is so different from our experience. The results of this poll in part reflect what we always thought: most foster carers do care, and try to do more than what is expected for their children, while other still manage to do an OK job. But unfortunately, the poll also highlights how a significant percentage (over 22%) of adoptive families have more than compelling reasons to criticise the work we do. You can find real cases in the comments below.

It is great news for all those foster carers who are doing the best they can for their children, because it suggests that their hard work will not go unnoticed. But it also represents a serious warning for prospective adoptive families. Not every foster carer is into fostering for the right reasons, and any real concern should be reported to protect the safety of other children.
