Title: Fostering care : 'relatively' speaking
Authors: O'Brien, Valerie
Permanent link:
Date: 1-Jun-2010
Abstract: This article discusses the revelations and outcry about children in state care being placed with families who have not yet been assessed and approved and it argues that there is a danger of generating confusion about the appropriateness of this option. But it is not the option that is faulty. It is not just lack of social workers. The issue is more complex than that.
