Research, knowledge, and understanding on how to deliver effective, safe foster care programmes in low and middle income countries is lacking. This report attempts to fill the gap in understanding by providing an analysis of the available literature and interviews with experts. By providing examples from around the world, it aims to assist those designing and delivering their own foster care programmes.

There may not be an international blueprint for successful foster care programmes, yet this report has identified those core elements that are necessary to ensure that each program is safe and effective in meeting children’s needs.
