"Inclusive Foster Care is about keeping children safe, connected and loved. It was identified as a step to begin transforming the foster care system to include the ongoing participation of parents and extended family in caring for their children. It is about forming relationships which develop and change, as parents and foster caregivers work together to care for the child. It is an intense relationship, demanding co-operation to resolve differences and to work in true partnership. The focus is the best interest of the child; the goal is preserving the family ties. It is a partnership where parents and foster caregivers teach and support each other to care for the child."
