We understand that for a child or young person moving to a foster carer can be a difficult time and experience.

Our team is always on hand to help you through your placement and help you with everything fostering. Alongside our own social worker, your carer also has a social worker who you can talk to at any time if you have any questions or concerns.

We have a children’s handbook which will be provided to you by your foster carer at the start of your placement.

We hope the guide is useful for you and covers the questions you may have and gives you knowledge on new areas or experiences.
