Scrolling news:

Adoption and fostering

29th Nov 2019

Sir, I didn’t realise that there were so many Muslim children in care – around 4,500 – in the UK and was surprised to read that many of these children are abused and neglected at home, and just five per cent of these children are adopted. (The Muslim News, October 25, ‘4,500 Muslim children in care in Britain’)
I support the researchers conclusions that there should be “collective action from policymakers, social workers, carers and for the Muslim community, aimed at prioritising each child’s welfare, security and happiness.”
The reason I believe there is shortage of Muslim foster carers and adopters is because of lack of information on the need of carers and also local authorities not publicising via Muslim media.
