Question

Do you think that it is right that children in care who are placed with agency carers in out of borough placements for long periods of time are forced to return to the local authority who arranged the initial placement when they turn 18. Considering that these young people have forged personal ties, built their own emotional support structures with foster carers and friends, do you not think that leaves these young people in a vulnerable position?
