Good morning everyone and thank you for the invitation to speak to you today.
I want to acknowledge your host, and my parliamentary colleague, Ron Mark, and the Chief Executive of Fostering Kids, Linda Surtees.
And indeed, everyone here who does so much for our most at-risk children and young people.
Foster Carers, Social Workers, NGOs, and CYF staff.
