Aims; The study aims to explore foster carers' experiences of successful placements and what constitutes a successful placement. The study also explores foster carers' experiences of support and examines their views of current services. Conclusions: The findings were constructed into a theory that can inform future fostering practice and placement planning. Related clinical and service implications are discussed and suggestions for future research are outlined. Most importantly, support that is accessible, with good professional relationships between the foster carer and social workers, whilst facilitating an attachment between the tester carer and child are key if a placement is to succeed.
