Many foster carers will have an allegation made against during their time as foster carers. Allegations are very distressing for foster carers and their families and it is vital that you are well supported over the course of the allegations. We have produced a range of resources to give you more information about allegations.
Regulations vary depending on where you are in the UK but your fostering service should have a clear policy on how allegations are dealt with. Members of the Fostering Network can get impartial support and advice from our help lines across the UK.
