A day in the life of a foster carer

by Joy Pollock

“I want to talk about my son and daughter. The Fostering network dedicates a month every October to sons and daughters of foster carers to highlight and acknowledge the role they play in the fostering family.

You have to think carefully about how fostering will affect your family in order that it works successfully and is sustainable.”

New to Fostering

Sometimes families are unable to provide the level of care and support a child needs and it may be unsafe for the child to continue to live at home. When this is the case, professionals will make the decision for the child to become ‘Looked After’ by the local authority – you may know this as ‘taken into care’.

Already Fostering

If you are already an approved foster carer, either for a voluntary agency, private fostering agency or another local authority, and you are thinking about changing then we would like to hear from you.
