Ofsted survey report following inspections of private fostering arrangements in 12 local authorities from 2012 to 2013.
This Ofsted survey report follows further inspections of local authority private fostering arrangements in 2012 to 2013. Analysis of these identified several ways in which arrangements for collecting and managing information about private fostering could be improved. This would help us have a better national understanding of this area. The report also showed that current requirements for authorities to make an annual review of their arrangements could also, with some adjustments, be more effective in improving quality.
