3rd May 2017 - IFCA Welcomes the HIQA overview of 2016 regulation of social care and healthcare

The Irish Foster Care Association (IFCA) welcomes the HIQA Regulation Overview Report published and particularly the review of children’s services that it conducted. IFCA is pleased that the majority of children in alternative care reported that they felt safe, were well supported by their carer or social care staff, were listened to and that they had someone to talk to.
