CoramBAAF Academy | British State Care System
Relax, the British State and a myriad of charities are protecting our children, helping them lead happy lives, helping them find foster Mums and Dads and helping them find long term loving adoptive parents. So no worries there then? Well, quite a few actually
There different types of fostering.
Types of foster care include:
- Emergency – where children need somewhere safe to stay for a few nights.
- Short-term – where carers look after children for a few weeks or months, while plans are made for the child’s future.
- Short-breaks – where disabled children or children with special needs or behavioural difficulties enjoy a short stay on a pre-planned, regular basis with a new family, and their parents or usual foster carers have a short break for themselves.
- Remand fostering – where young people in England or Wales are “remanded” by the court to the care of a specially trained foster carer. Scotland does not use remand fostering as young people tend to attend a children’s hearing rather than go to court. However, the children’s hearing might send a young person to a secure unit and there are now some schemes in Scotland looking at developing fostering as an alternative to secure accommodation. For more information on remand fostering (in England and Wales) download a briefing note on remand fostering (pdf) produced by the National Association for the Care and Resettlement of Offenders (NACRO).
- Long-term and permanent – not all children who cannot return to their own families want to be adopted, especially older children or those who continue to have regular contact with relatives. These children live with long-term foster carers until they reach adulthood and are ready to live independently.
- “Connected persons” or “kinship” fostering or “family and friends”– where children who are looked after by a local authority are cared for by people they already know. This can be very beneficial for children, and is called “connected persons”, or “kinship” fostering or “family and friends”. If they are not looked after by the local authority, children can live with their aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters or grandparents without outside involvement.
- Private fostering – where the parents make an arrangement for the child to stay with someone else who is not a close relative and has no parental responsibilities, and the child stays with that person (the private foster carer) for more than 27 days. Although this is a private arrangement there are special rules about how the child is looked after. The local authority must be told about the arrangements and visit to check on the child’s welfare.
De facto corporation and corporation by estoppel

Became apparent that foster carer Eve Ward and social worker Kerry Wortleydid LIE to the Home Office in order to obtain a passport for my only child. Question what did the Home Office or the police do about that?
De facto corporation and corporation by estoppel are both terms that are used by courts in most common law jurisdictions to describe circumstances in which a business organization that has failed to become a de jure corporation (a corporation by law).
Our state foster care agencies are apparently so underfunded that they are taking resources from abused and neglected children. The agencies are taking control over foster children’s Social Security benefits (when the children are disabled or have deceased parents) and using the children’s funds to repay foster care costs. In other words.
The lessons Of Kids Company Are Clear
Kids Company chief executive Camila Batmanghelidjh born c. 1963) is an Iranian-born author and former charity executive in the United Kingdom. She is best known as the founder of Kids Company, a charity which worked with marginalised children and young people in the UK (wikipedia).
The Kids Company debacle of last year highlighted the issues surrounding relationships between local service providers and national charities.
The longstanding claim to ‘reach’ 36,000 children each year was exaggerated; that officials at the Department for Education were so concerned about financial mismanagement at the charity that they tried to stop its multi-million pound funding.
It is reported in 2002 its chairman of trustees, the BBC executive Alan Yentob, secretly lobbied Treasury officials over an unpaid £700,000 employment tax bill. The charity had deducted this money from staff but failed to pass these funds on to the taxman. In the end, a secret deal was done whereby £589,000 of the total bill was written off at public expense.
