Permanent foster care
29/07/2020 The Ombudsman (e.f.), Francisco Fernández Marugán, has made recommendations for the autonomous communities to adopt comprehensive policies as soon as possible to ensure the effective implementation of foster care as a priority measure for the protection of minors as opposed to residential foster care, as established by Organic Law 8/2015, of 22 July, on the modification of the child and adolescent protection system.
Another of the recommendations made pursues that the autonomous communities reduce the time of assessment of suitability of families or persons offered for foster care of minors in its different typologies.
Precisely, Fernández Marugán held a meeting last Monday with the State Association of Foster Care (ASEAF), to analyze the main problems affecting the child protection system in our country.

Organic Law 1/1996, of January 15, 1996, on the Legal Protection of Minors, partially amending the Civil Code and the Civil Procedure Law, hereinafter referred to as the Organic Law on the Legal Protection of Minors, together with the provisions of the Civil Code on this matter, constitutes the main regulatory framework for the rights of minors, guaranteeing them uniform protection throughout the Spanish State. This law has been the reference for the legislation that the Autonomous Communities have subsequently passed, in accordance with their competences in this area.
It also introduces an express mention of digital and media literacy, as an essential tool for minors to develop their critical thinking and take an active part in a participatory society and in today’s world, which cannot be understood without the new information and communication technologies.
Closely related to the above, Article 12 guarantees the necessary support so that minors under parental authority, guardianship, custody or foster care of a victim of gender or domestic violence can remain with the victim. It also introduces the presumption of minority of a person whose age of majority has not been established with certainty, until it is finally determined.
