Motion text

That this House notes that Foster Care Fortnight 2006 will run from 8th to 21st May; praises the exceptional work done by the country's 37,000 foster families; thanks these foster carers for the positive impact that their guardianship has on the children and young people who live with them; congratulates the Fostering Network for co-ordinating Foster Care Fortnight and supports the theme, fostering bright futures, which has been chosen by the Fostering Network as the focus for this year's awareness raising campaign; in the light of this theme, recognises that despite the hard work of foster carers the health and education outcomes for looked after children are still worryingly poor; acknowledges that the support foster carers give the 50,000 children who live with them is essential to the children's achievements; and calls on the Government to recognise this in its support of foster carers.
