EU nationals: foster carers and fostered children

The report ‘EU nationals: foster carers and fostered children.’ by Fostering Network’s Campaigns Manager, Vicki Swain concludes that;

“EU citizens in the UK will be able to apply to get settled or pre-settled status to enable them to continue living in the UK after December 2020. Brexit should not prevent those families from continuing to foster”. 

“In regards to non-UK EU nationals who want to become foster carers, the deadline for applying for settled or pre-settled status is 30 June 2021, so currently Brexit should not prevent those families from applying to foster”.
