In 2015, NAFP carried out research in England and Wales that resulted in the publication of guidance in relation to fostering arrangements undermined for seemingly financial reasons. Nevertheless, there continue to be reports around the United Kingdom of pressure placed on otherwise stable fostering arrangements with foster carers from the independent sector.

The earlier guidance made reference to the detrimental effects this has on children and how this undermines the chances of success for the children placed. In addition to revisiting this kind of pressure placed on stable fostering arrangements, this latest good practice guidance now also considers whether children and young people are adequately consulted in these matters.
