Popular Placement Types: As a modern multicultural city, London has large numbers of foster children from Black and Minority Ethnic groups.  As a result, Fostering Agencies seek BME foster carers to give these young people a culturally sensitive supportive base from which to flourish. 

18% of London’s foster care placements are for Unaccompanied Asylum Seekers. A significant number of this group are over 16 years of age and male.
