Abstract:

In this paper, Robbie Gilligan sets out to highlight questions about the role and experiences of men as foster carers in fostering couples. The sparse literature relevant to the topic is reviewed; some of the therapeutic and practical reasons for the significance of the man's role in foster care are considered; findings from a small exploratory study of male foster carers and their role are presented; and certain policy implications arising are discussed. The author has been a foster carer himself.
