Why Placement Disruption is Still One of The Biggest Foster Care Issues

Many of us are lucky to grow up in a safe, secure and consistent environment, so having to move schools and make new friends is certainly a feeling largely unfamiliar to most children.

Quite often, moving house is one of the most stressful, unnatural and challenging things to overcome as a child, but for a foster child this can be even more difficult to come to terms with.

Regardless of the love, care and compassion shown by everyone in the wider fostering community, we still hear that placement disruption is still one of the biggest foster care issues surrounding the industry.
