Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council has released a statement after a report in the Telegraph said that social workers rejected two experienced foster carers when they discovered that they were members of UKIP.
– Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council statement
After a group of sibling children were placed with agency foster carers, issues were raised regarding the long-term suitability of the carers for these particular children.
With careful consideration, a decision was taken to move the children to alternative care. We continue to keep the situation under review.
