One of the many myths about people with drug and alcohol misuse is that the children of these people would be better off in care arrangements. However, we cannot and must not simply write off mothers and fathers with drug problems as being unfit to raise their children.
If parents are provided with appropriate rehabilitation and intensive parenting education and support, many are able to successfully overcome their drug dependence, become better parents and rebuild happy, healthy families where children are safe and nurtured.
The cost of caring for children in foster care is, on average, 52 per cent higher than the costs of caring for other children, not in care. With your support, we can help them take control of and change their lives and build a better and safe future for their families.
