Runaways and Foster Care in London

Setting: Now-ish. Probably '06 or '07
Research Done: went through comm tags like mad; googled British Foster Care, English Foster Care, Action for Children, National Children's Home, British Social Services, a few others I can't remember.

The deal:

Ideally, I want my main guy to be somewhat friendly with a group of teenage kids, probably between 13-16 or so. The way the scenario is drafted is the kids are all either run-aways, or in some sort of foster placement. How does placement and education work for these sorts of kids, and what would be the channels taken if they were picked up on the street, having run away/skipped school?

It's kind of a small one, but I get the feeling that if I fake it, it'll be horribly wrong.
