Demographics of foster carers and children in foster care

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council,

Please could you provide the following information for *mainstream* foster carers (i.e. not family/friends/connected).
Do you record the religion of foster carers and children in care? Yes/No
*If not, please provide the following information for Black carers and South Asian carers/children only.*
I appreciate I’m asking for a lot of information, please provide whatever you’re able to. It may help you to know I do a voluntary work to promote fostering to Muslim communities and this data would help me to do this more effectively.
