Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare a
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Has a Care Order been made or have you signed a S20 agreement?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

yes a care order has been made

Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Then I am afraid that that Order remains in place until she is 18 and she cannot leave Foster Care, or any other placement until then, unless the Order is lifted.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
