Lack Of Care For Children In Foster Homes

Published tisdag 1 april 2008 kl 10.37

Sweden’s social services have been criticised in a report for not ”caring enough” about the children they place in Foster Homes.

The report, presented on Monday by Sweden’s County Adminstration Board, severely criticised social services at one in five municipalities, which failed to follow national guidelines and provide regular care visits to those children placed in foster homes.

By law, follow-up checks should be carried out every six months, providing care and support to foster children. In some cases, children in foster homes were only contacted two or three times by social services over a four year period.

The report showed that there were large differences between municipalities in how they performed.

”These failings have been pointed out earlier but rather little has happened,” said Karin Björnson, co-ordinator of the report.
