Organisation and implementation of foster care

Findings report

Description

The Ombudsman suggested that the state take action towards extending and supporting foster care. More specifically, the GO highlighted the inadequate legal framework that could provide: i) immediate placement in foster care of children removed from their families in accordance with the edicts of a juvenile prosecutor or court order; ii) implementation by the local social services without time-consuming processes, in order to avoid prior placement of the child in other care institutions. The Ombudsman proposed supporting and promoting of foster care via legislative reform, improving the implementation process as well as taking concrete organisational measures to disseminate and ensure quality standards in its implementation.
