The Union Ministry of Women and Child Development has released model guidelines for foster care. These guidelines have been developed through a consultative process involving representatives from States/UTs, Non-governmental organizations, civil society, academicians, experts and organizations working on alternative care.

The Model Guidelines on Foster Care detail the procedures, roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, along with various aspects related to the implementation of the foster care program in the districts.

These Guidelines have been strengthened by providing additional formats for preparing case study of the child, application form for the foster carer/parents to apply, tools for counselling before and during the process to the child, the foster carer/parents and the biological parents of that child, if available.

The IEC material for supporting the foster carer/parents on helpful tips, the rewards and challenges of a foster parent, and a summary card on steps on becoming a foster carer are also covered in the model foster care guidelines.

These Guidelines however do not cover Pre-adoption Foster Care as in such cases Guidelines Governing Adoption of Children, 2015 will apply.

These Guidelines may be adopted or adapted as per the requirement of the State/UT.
