Tim Clewer is project manager for CARE Remand Fostering in England. This organization conducts a remand scheme based on a relational approach. The aim is to make the experience of remand a constructive, rather than a destructive, experience for young people. It works by recruiting families from local churches. The families must be willing to accept into their homes and to foster young people who would otherwise be on remand in a young offender institution. Clewer discusses the origins of CARE Remand Fostering, principles and goals of this approach, kinds of clients served, educational and vocational programs for the young people, screening of foster families and support for them, and outcomes for participating young people.
