Government studying how to improve foster care for children

The Government is trying to give children in foster care a more homely environment.

Details will be announced within months, Social and Family Development Minister Chan Chun Sing said yesterday.

It is looking at getting parents to come in regularly to work with staff of care homes to rehabilitate and reconstruct the family ties, Channel NewsAsia quoted him as saying.

The ministry will also strengthen its re-integration programme for children when they leave foster care.

Mr Chan was speaking at the 25th Anniversary of the Muhammadiyah Welfare Home.
