Free text Following the recent death through abuse and neglect of a privately fostered child, and the fear that many more children in similar informal arrangements might be in danger, report on the on-going debate about the urgent need for regulating private fostering and the situation as is stands today in the United Kingdom. Privately fostered children include those who are placed with strangers (non-relatives) for a number of reasons, such as: parents' work or studies commitments, adolescents temporarily estranged from their families, children attending language courses, children from abroad on holiday or exchange visits, asylum seekers and children brought from overseas with a view to adoption.
